Feb 7 2014

Time: 5:30 p.m.

In her speech, Sowing the Seeds of Hope, Dr. Goodall, will bring her audience into the world of the Gombe chimpanzees―from her early observations and experiences to the latest news and stories from the field.

Dr. Goodall will also share information about the work of the Jane Goodall Institute, which continues her pioneering research and celebrated its 35th anniversary in 2012. Today, the Institute is a global leader in the effort to protect chimpanzees and their habitats. It also is widely recognized for establishing innovative community-centered conservation and development programs in Africa, and Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots, the Institute’s global environmental and humanitarian youth program.

In Sowing the Seeds of Hope, Dr. Goodall will provide insight into the person behind the globe-trotting international icon:  a UN Messenger of Peace, Dame of the British Empire, and the subject of countless articles and television programs around the world.  She will also discuss the current threats facing the planet and her reasons for hope in these complex times, encouraging everyone in the audience to do their part to make a positive difference each and every day.
