Roots and Shoots
I had the privilege of listening to Jane Goodall at the Brish Council on 21 Jan 2007, while she was addressing the audience of "Wildscreen India".
Jane Goodall is intenationally known as the saviour of chimpanzees. But it was indeed more thrilling to listen to her enthusiasm for the "Roots and Shoots" program she has initiated in 100 countries and is soon starting in India too.
Roots and Shoots of plants have the uncanny ability to pierce/sprout through brick walls. She believes that the brick wall of unsustainable development/global warming will have roots and shoots growing all over soon - roots and shoots being the young workers
she is organizing into groups of grassroot workers from all corners of the world.
The youth of today and even senior citizens can be mobilised for action and they are our "Reason for Hope"
