Our origins

Roots & Shoots began in Tanzania when a group of teenagers approached Dr. Jane about concerns in their community in 1993. Dr. Jane encouraged the students to take action in their local communities. Inspired and proud of what they were achieving, Dr. Jane spread their stories to youth worldwide, who were equally eager to make change happen.

and ever growing.

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots is our global environmental and humanitarian programme for young people of all ages. It empowers them to become involved in hands-on projects of their choosing and each group chooses three projects, one to benefit the community, animals and the environment.

Young people (and many adult groups) are already changing our world and seeing the impact of their projects once learn about the issues affecting our world and can take action to make positive change happen.

“Every Individual Can Make a Difference.”
