Roots & Shoots
Roots & Shoots is the Jane Goodall Institute’s global network of youth taking action to make the world a better place.
It is guided by the founding principles and extraordinary vision of Dr. Jane Goodall, renowned primatologist, environmentalist and humanitarian.
Roots & Shoots is dedicated to inspiring, training and supporting tomorrow’s leaders today. It goes beyond motivating youth to learn about the issues facing our local and global communities—it helps them design, lead and implement their own projects to address the issues.
