This week’s partner spotlight is the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI). The Jane Goodall Institute is a global community conservation organization that advances the vision and work of Dr. Jane Goodall, a world-renowned scientist, conservationist, and philanthropist. One major division of JGI is the Roots and Shoots program. Founded in 1991, the youth service program aims 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 people, other animals, and the environment.
Special thanks to the Jane Goodall Institute and Roots and Shoots for providing seed funding for our inaugural design thinking workshops at Georgia Tech and Emory University!
Founded in 1977 by Dr. Jane Goodall, JGI is a global nonprofit that empowers people to make a difference for all living things. JGI advances Dr. Goodall’s holistic approach through a tapestry of nine strategies that build on each other and bring the power of community-centered conservation to life.
