We are delighted to invite you to attend a presentation by Jasmina Georgovska from the Jane Goodall Institute UK about the extraordinary Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, Founder – the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace.

Titled ‘Dr Jane Goodall, DBE – her life, work and legacy’, the talk will give you an insight into Dr Jane’s amazing life and achievements. Dr. Goodall is an ethologist and conservationist known for her long-term research into the lives of wild chimpanzees in Gombe, Tanzania which began in 1960 and continues today. Jasmina will talk about Dr Jane’s early years at Gombe, how her life evolved to work with local communities, to enrich the lives of captive primates and to develop the global humanitarian and environmental programme Roots & Shoots, which empowers young people of all ages to become involved in hands on projects to benefit people, animals and the environment, and is now active in more than 70 countries.

Jasmina will share stories about Dr Jane’s life and her reasons for hope, and why she believes that it is up to each one of us to decide the kind of difference we make with our daily decisions and actions.

About Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots
Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots programme is about making positive change happen – for our communities, for animals and for the environment, by providing teachers, educators and communities with exciting and inspiring activities that their students/ groups can get involved in.
These resources offer opportunities to learn about humanitarian, animal and environmental issues affecting our world, share insights, ideas and inspiration for making positive change happen.
The individual efforts of thousands of young people are making monumental change. With an overall theme of learning to live in peace and harmony with animals, the environment and each other, they learn to respect others and break down barriers between nations, religions, cultures, old and young, rich and poor, and between humans and the natural world. And they understand that every individual has a role to play and makes a difference every day.
