Indigenous Perspectives Project Stream
A project that honours Indigenous voices and perspectives.
By exploring Indigenous perspectives youth can understand and learn about the deep history of Indigenous traditions and their importance to living in a sustainable way with nature. Please ensure that your proposal demonstrates your intention and ability to honour these perspectives authentically by consulting with and including Indigenous Peoples.
- Cultural exchange between Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth on topics relevant to sustainability
- Youth-organized community event that includes Elder teachings on local Indigenous plants/animals
- Using Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) and practices to restore local habitat
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 more than 50 countries around the world. Wherever there’s a group, young people are making change that benefits animals, people and the environment.
