“With the challenges recently presented at COP26 and the on-going effects of the Pandemic still very much at the forefront of our daily lives, the resilience of our Roots & Shoots members in continuing to strive towards conservation is both impressive and re-assuring. They are creating a sustainable future led by responsible and eco-conscious Global citizens. I am confident that their actions are truly leading us down the path of positive change. Roots & Shoots has become much more than just another environmental programme. It is a way of life for young people – not only in the UK but across the Globe.”

Twinning Programme

Join Our Twinning Programme

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.
