Climate Change

Climate Change Project Stream

A project that helps to lower the carbon footprint of your community.

Around the world, youth are experiencing the effects of the changing climate change first-hand. By taking the lead and working together to act against climate change, you and your project can be part of the solution for a sustainable future.

Examples of possible projects:

  • Do an energy audit of your school and see how your school can reduce its energy use
  • Lead a climate march in your community to bring awareness to the issue
  • Host a tree planting day to increase tree cover and the sequestration of carbon

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots

Do great things in your community.

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots began in 1991 when Dr. Jane met with 12 Tanzanian high school students who wanted to tackle urgent problems in their community. Since that meeting, Roots & Shoots groups have multiplied many times over and can now be found in nearly 100 countries around the world. Wherever there’s a group, young people are making change that benefits animals, people and the environment.
