Roots & Shoots is an educational program from The Jane Goodall Institute. Their mission is "to foster respect and compassion for all living things. To promote understanding of all cultures and beliefs and to inspire each individual to take action to make the world a better place for the environment, animals and human community."
Dr. Jane Goodall stated, "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 of thousands of roots & shoots, hundreds of thousands of young people around the world, can break through these walls. You can change the world."
