Jane Goodall: Tomorrow & Beyond – USA Lecture Tour

March 8, 2017 - April 8, 2017

In her speech, Tomorrow & Beyond, Dr. Goodall will bring her audience into the world of the Gombe chimpanzees―from her early observations and experiences, to the latest discoveries.  Jane will tell her story; how a young woman from England changed everything by revealing the true nature of wild chimpanzees and our similarities to them, and how that same girl left the forest on a mission to protect our connection to all living things. Her words will demonstrate all that she and others are doing today in order to protect the earth we all call home, and her hopes for tomorrow and beyond.

In Tomorrow & Beyond, Dr. Goodall will provide insight into the person behind the globe-trotting international icon: a UN Messenger of Peace, Dame of the British Empire, and the subject of countless articles and television programs around the world. She will also discuss the current threats facing the planet, and her five reasons for hope in these complex times – encouraging everyone in the audience to do their part to make a positive difference each and every day.

Dr. Goodall will also share information about the work of the organization she founded, the Jane Goodall Institute. Jane’s vision, which is JGI’s mission, continues her pioneering research at Gombe and is widely recognized for establishing innovative community-centered conservation and development programs in Africa as well as Roots & Shoots, the Institute’s global environmental and humanitarian youth action program. Empowering young people of all ages to identify and address issues in their local communities or worldwide they are truly helping make a difference for people, animals and the environment we all share.

This year, the Institute celebrates its 40th anniversary since its founding in 1977, and continues to be a global leader in the effort to protect chimpanzees and their habitats, as well as advancin environmentalism, education and animal welfare awareness and innovation into the future. With offices in 30 countries and Roots & Shoots in nearly 100 countries, these programs support the work and mission of Dr. Goodall and all that she has lived her life protecting and helping grow.
