World-renowned primatologist and conservationist to bring a message of empowerment for young and old to do what they can for a better world as she joins the annual celebration of nature and beauty.
Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace, will serve as the Grand Marshal of the 2013 Tournament of Roses festivities. On New Year’s Day, in front of a world television audience, Dr. Goodall will ride in the 124th Rose Parade® presented by Honda and themed “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!.” She will then toss the coin before the 99th Rose Bowl Game® presented by VIZIO. Dr. Goodall has been an inspiration to the Pasadena Tournament of Roses as the organization continues to seek ways to make the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl Game more sustainable by finding ways to evolve waste-management practices and inspire that change in those who participate in Tournament of Roses events.
