Aug 30 2010

Dr. Goodall will commemorate Gombe 50, the Jane Goodall Institute’s global 50th anniversary celebration of her pioneering chimpanzee research and inspiring vision for our future, with a month-long tour of Asia throughout the month of September. 

On August 30-September 4, Dr. Goodall will visit Hong Kong for a number of events organized by JGI-Hong Kong and Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots. JGI-Hong Kong’s projects have grown dramatically since the office started in 1999. Approximately 40 Roots & Shoots groups have been formed in the city with over 1,400 young people involved in the program.

Highlights of Dr. Goodall’s itinerary include:    

  • August 30: Closing address at the Roots & Shoots Asia Pacific Youth Summit. Held at Hong Kong Polytechnic University and Renaissance College, the summit will bring together Roots & Shoots members from across the continent to focus on making positive change happen in their communities.

  • August 31: Opening speech at the TEDx Hong Kong Conference at Polytechnic University.

  • September 2: JGI-Hong Kong presents an “evening with Jane” gala dinner in support of local operations at the Grand Hyatt Hotel Ballroom in the Wanchai District.
