Roots & Shoots U.S. Growing Together Campaign


To celebrate 25 years since Dr. Jane Goodall founded the program, Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots has launched a U.S. national campaign, “Growing Together.” The Growing Together Campaign will serve as a celebration of the achievements of Roots & Shoots groups in the United States and it will represent a collective first step toward the next 25 years.
