Our founder, Jane Goodall, is a UN Messenger of Peace. We therefore encourage every one to participate in an activity to mark this important occasion.
As Jane says in her 2014 message for peace, "We are all horrified and saddened when we think of the violence in the world today ? violence against one another and violence toward the natural world."
This year, we encourage our Roots & Shoots members to call for a truce on the war against dingoes (click here for further information), or, consider making a Giant Peace Dove Puppet. Click here for instructions.
JGI Australia helps the conservation and protection of chimpanzees and gorillasby supporting community centred conservation activities in the Democratic Republic of Congo and a sanctuary for orphaned chimpanzees in Congo.
We’ve all heard people saying that we need to create a better world for our children. At JGI, we believe in creating better children for our world! The destiny of animals, people and the environment is in our hands.
Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots program equips young people with tools, motivation and a global network to become change-makers. In Australia, we call our Roots & Shoots members "solutionaries".
