“Despite recent attempts by various Government bodies to address issues of sustainability and the serious impacts of global warming, we still have a long road ahead of us. Roots & Shoots, meanwhile, are offering immediate, powerful solutions, engaging young people in positive planetary action to preserve natural resources, reduce unsustainable consumption and lifestyles and to replenish our environment.”

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.
