The Students for the Salish Sea Summit

Map pinPender Island, British Columbia

Our vision is to gather students from around the Salish Sea to learn, work together to innovate new ideas, be inspired by others, and spread awareness about ocean pollution and youth activism. We want youth to feel equipped with the skills they need to bring climate action back to their communities.

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.
