Hello and Happy New Year!
2016 was an interesting year at our UK headquarters. Our dedicated members have been as busy as ever leaving a trail blazing environmental footprints on our planet. We are proud of each and every one of you.
But there’s a question that keeps resurfacing in my many visits to schools when I am speaking to our young members. It is a question that has come up often in the 10 years I have worked for Dr Jane, and indeed a question she is also faced with on a regular basis.
How can we still have hope for the planet, given all the challenges we face?
The simple answer is, that we do.
The reason – because of all of our young Roots & Shoots members who are doing amazing work, not just in the UK but across the globe, to protect our planet and make our world a place that we can all be proud to live in.
So here is your regular update on all things Roots & Shoots, from inspirational stories to some of the most creative projects we’ve encountered this year. Keep up the good work!
And don’t forget – the Roots & Shoots UK Awards are coming soon, so put Friday 3rd of March in your diary!
