Roots & Shoots State Home
"Roots creep underground everywhere and make a firm foundation.
Shoots seem very weak, but to reach the light, they can break open brick walls.
Imagine that the brick walls are all the problems we have inflicted on our planet.
Hundreds and thousands of Roots & Shoots, hundreds and thousands of young
people around the world, can break through these walls.
You can change the world."
A division of the Jane Goodall Institute, Roots & Shoots is an international organization dedicated to improving environmental and interhuman understanding. Its three-fold mission is:
- To foster respect and compassion for all living things.
- To promote understanding of all cultures and beliefs.
- To inspire each individual to take action to make the world a better place for the environment, animals, and the human community.
