About the 30th Anniversary of Roots & Shoots

In 2021, we celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Roots & Shoots, a program of the Jane Goodall Institute. It all began on Jane Goodall’s front porch in Tanzania, when a group of students told her they felt powerless thinking about the problems all around them. Jane encouraged them to use their voices and ideas to address the issues they saw, head on. Roots & Shoots was born.

As we reflect on the global impact of this extraordinary and singular youth movement, we look to the horizon and continue to empower the young people creating the roadmap of a better future for all. Roots & Shoots changemakers have done incredible things over the last 30 years through their powerful community projects, you’re already changing the world! But this year is going to be HUGE – this is your chance to be part of something extraordinary by helping to create the roadmap for that brighter future. Join us as we do 30,000 projects making a difference for people, other animals, and the planet we share in 2021 – and for the next 30+ years!
