An Evening with Dr. Goodall

During the Tomorrow & Beyond Tour Dr. Goodall will bring her audience into the world of the Gombe chimpanzees―from her early observations and experiences to the latest news and stories from the field. 
Dr. Goodall will share information about the work of the Jane Goodall Institute, which continues her pioneering research at Gombe and is widely recognised for establishing innovative community-centered conservation and development programs in Africa. This year, the Institute celebrates its 40th anniversary since it’s founding in 1977 and continues to be a global leader in the effort to protect chimpanzees and their habitats, with offices in 30 countries, all supporting the work and mission of our founder.
Dr. Goodall began Roots & Shoots, the Institute’s global environmental and humanitarian youth programme that is now in more than 100 countries across the globe. The programme empowers young people of all ages to identify issues in their local communities or worldwide, and truly help to make a difference for people, animals and the environment we all share.
In Tomorrow & Beyond, Dr. Goodall will provide insight into the person behind the globe-trotting international icon: a UN Messenger of Peace, Dame of the British Empire, and the subject of countless articles and television programs around the world. She will also discuss the current threats facing the planet and her five reasons for hope in these complex times, encouraging everyone in the audience to do their part to make a positive difference each and every day.
