On this day back in 1991, Roots & Shoots was born with a small group of concerned young citizens gathering on Dr Jane’s porch in Tanzania. Today, Roots & Shoots is a global network of young people (from preschool to university) taking action on behalf of animals, people and our shared environment and making a difference in almost 100 countries. Right here in Australia, we have thousands of R&S members taking part in our National Youth Leadership Council and our campaigns on mobile phone recycling, palm oil, chimp champion and many others.
If the young people in your life are not already part of this amazing movement of inspirational youth, please encourage them to sign up for R&S today. To find out more visit rootsandshoots.org.au or email rootsandshoots@janegoodall.
