“In a year of unprecedented upheaval, I have been immensely impressed by the creativity and resourcefulness of our Roots & Shoots members. It is their generation who have been guiding ours. It’s through their inventiveness and energy in the face of the many obstacles, that we are finding practical solutions for a positive environmental and social impact.  Making use of the ‘opportunities’ of lockdown, to re-generate our planet by pursuing activities in their homes, gardens, back yards and local community spaces.  No matter what the crisis, R&S continues to rise to the challenge.”

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots is delighted to announce their new twinning programme between schools in the UK and schools in the United Arab Emirates.

Your students will have the opportunity to learn about another group’s homeland, environment, wildlife, culture, religion and languages. You’ll be able to use technology such as email and video conferencing to give your students a personalised look at your partner school and its students and activities. The perspectives you gain from another culture will encourage your students to express themselves clearly.
