On the 9th of March, we’ll be celebrating the annual Roots & Shoots Awards in the beautiful Barbican centre in Central London.
The Awards are a celebration of the achievements of our amazing Roots & Shoots groups who’ve campaigned, researched, raised money, made positive changes, raised awareness and worked as teams and individuals to help people, animals and the environment.
We’ll be joined by 13 schools from across the country, plus a very special guest school; the American Community School who will be joining us all the way from Abu Dhabi and are part of our Roots & Shoots Twinning Programme.
And of course, Dr Jane Goodall herself will be there to celebrate and inspire us.

There’s going to be so much going on to look forward to it’s hard to know where to start!
Firstly, our Roots & Shoots groups will have lots of displays up showcasing the projects they have been working on, which are guaranteed to give you inspiration and hope.
We’ll be looking forward to the Awards Ceremony where the winners of each category will be announced.
