Scotland, UK: Dr. Goodall at the Y Highland Youth Summit 2012
Time: 9:00am - 5:00pm
Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace, will attend the Y Highland Youth Summit, at the Smithton-Culloden Free Church & Conference Centre in Inverness. The Summit has been organized by the Highland Facilitator Team in order to engage, enable and empower local young people. During her visit, Dr. Goodall will meet members of Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots, the global environmental and humanitarian youth program of the Jane Goodall Institute.
Founded in 1991 by Dr. Jane Goodall and a group of Tanzanian students, the Roots & Shoots program is about making positive change happen—for our communities, for animals and for the environment. With hundreds of thousands of young people in more than 120 countries, the Roots & Shoots network connects youth of all ages who share a desire to create a better world. Young people identify problems in their communities and take action through service projects, youth‐led campaigns and an interactive website. Roots & Shoots members are making a difference across the globe. For more information, please visit www.rootsandshoots.uk.
