Jane Goodall

Jane keynotes Geneva Lecture Series

Jane was the keynote speaker of the fourth edition of the Geneva Lecture Series on 26 May at the Palais des Nations, and urged us all to recognize our obligation to future generations. "When I think about how we have harmed the planet since I was their age, I feel this desperation and shame," she said. "We have compromised their future. But it’s not true that there’s nothing that can be done about it”.

Her talk was titled "Nature's wake-up call: Why we must heed the warning."

A remarkable evening
