Kids learn from Elders

Our plan is to bring together first nations elders and youth to share their knowledge on how to be sustainable, to be kind to the environment and everything that lives there. We would host an event where Indigenous elders would share stories about using things from nature in a sustainable way.

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.
