Celebrate our achievements, create future positive change
As young people face the greatest challenges of our lifetime, we want the 30th Roots & Shoots Anniversary to celebrate the incredible diversity, connections, and accomplishments of individuals in the program from around the globe, while also mobilizing hundreds of thousands of young people to create positive change in their communities today, for tomorrow!
We want young people to feel hopeful and empowered to take on problems facing people, animals, and the environment as individuals and together in their daily lives right now and for years to come.
The power is in your hands
Roots & Shoots inspires young people to believe in their own voice and abilities, growing connections, and respect across all identities. Roots & Shoots changemakers have already done incredible things over the last 30 years, you’re already changing the world!
But this year is going to be HUGE – this is your chance to be part of something extraordinary and help to create the roadmap of a better future for all.
Hope. Act. Change.
These are what we’re focussed on this anniversary year. Have hope, turn that hope into actions, and help create change. You are amazing, powerful and brilliant, and you will achieve great things.
