Greenway's Warm Welcome -

Map pinWinnipeg, Manitoba

Winnipeg winters are cold! We will create ‘warm welcome’ packages—scarves, bannock and a friendly letter—to share with a newcomer group. Students will learn about indigenous culture, local newcomer organizations and be welcoming and neighbourly while sharing with our new community members.

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.
