Bethesda, MD: Dr. Goodall’s Speech at NIH
On April 1, 2011, Dr. Goodall to give a special speech entitled Reason for Hope – The Way Ahead, as part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) afternoon lecture series.
The year 2010 marked a monumental milestone for the Jane Goodall Institute and its founder, Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE. Fifty years ago, Dr. Goodall, who is today a world-renowned primatologist, conservationist and UN Messenger of Peace, first set foot on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, in what is now Tanzania’s Gombe National Park. The chimpanzee behavioral research she pioneered there has produced a wealth of scientific discovery, and her vision has expanded into a global mission to empower people of all ages to make a difference for all living things.
In her lecture, Dr. Goodall will reflect—both personally and professionally—on the meaning of the past five decades, the extraordinary changes the world has seen since 1960, and the impact these changes have had on people, animals and the environment we all share. In addition, she will discuss the role we must all play over the next 50 years to ensure a better future for generations to come.
