EXPANDING THE ROOTS & SHOOTS NETWORK GLOBALLY
The Jane Goodall Institute-USA works with the Disney Conservation Fund to provide additional funding to several international offices within the JGI family. Currently working with 14 international offices, the emphasis of the Disney Kids and Nature funding is to increase the amount of time youth and their families spend in nature.
Through the hard work of Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots, each country is able to design campaigns specific to their regions’ interests and needs. Through classrooms, workshops, and web-based activities and resources, youth around the world have been connecting with nature and inspired to begin their own Roots & Shoots projects.
