The Jane Goodall Institute New Zealand is delighted to have the Right Honourable Helen Clark, former UNDP Administrator and Prime Minister of New Zealand, as its patron.
Jane Goodall Institute New Zealand exists to undertake work on global and local sustainability issues and to inspire and empower people to take action to make the world a better place for animals, people, and the environment.
Roots creep underground everywhere and make a firm foundation. Shoots seem very weak, but to reach the light, they can break open brick walls.
JGI's Roots & Shoots programme empowers people with the tools, motivation and support they need to address the problems that matter most to them.
Through JGINZ's nationwide Roots & Shoots outreach team we create an ever expanding network of people, joining the R&S global network, who are inspired and engaged to be change‐makers in human rights, environmental preservation and animal protection issues, undertaking change projects which contribute to the global goals of sustainability.
JGI New Zealand believes in empowering young people to act as conservation leaders.
Our programmes and campaigns are guided by our youth leaders, and they engage and inspire others with their actions.
OUR GLOBAL PRESENCE
Jane Goodall Institutes are making a difference around the world everyday.
Our approach as a global conservation organisation has always been community-centred, while working together across sectors, regions and cultures to make the greatest impact. This means improving the lives of people, animals, and the environment through international and local collaboration, and having the people who know their communities best take the lead in creating positive change.
We inspire hope through the collective power of individual action.
