On this special occasion, we recognise the unique legacy of Dr. Goodall’s scientific breakthroughs and courageous leadership which have led to positive changes in policies and attitudes around the world, benefitting animals, people and the global environment.

Dr. Goodall invites us all to live sustainably, with compassion and to look with hope for a brighter, greener future. One of the most resilient and impressive forces on Earth is contained within the seeds of a plant; they are powerful enough to break through walls, to crumble concrete, to fight their way towards the light and find a way to grow, thrive and survive.

Green spaces are essentially in our efforts to protect global biodiversity, if we want to combat the climate crisis, we need to protect our precious green spaces, restore ones we have lost and establish new ones.
