From Japan to Tanzania, Jane Listens to Hopecaster Messages of Unity and Action for the Future (Jane Goodall Hopecast #16)


Episode Summary

For this Mailbag episode and our final episode of the season, Dr. Goodall is joined by Hopecaster and Executive Director of the Jane Goodall Institute, USA, Anna Rathmann, as they hear from Hopecasters from around the world to close out the first season of The Jane Goodall Hopecast. Jane and Anna listen to powerful messages about what being part of the natural world means to Hopecasters, and how they take action to protect our shared planet. To Mimi from Myanmar, living on Earth means “family.” To Dr. Kulkarni, a biologist at Harvard University, living on Earth means “ours,” as in something that is shared.  Anna and Jane reflect on how different countries and people the Hopecast has been able to reach and how Jane has continued to inspire younger generations to take on climate change and animal advocacy. One young Hopecaster from Spain encapsulates what the Hopecast has meant to her and how Jane’s words have encouraged her to become an activist at just 13 years old, telling Dr. Goodall: “You’re more than an inspiration. You’re the voice of hope.”

Stay to the end of the episode for an exciting announcement from Jane and Anna.
