Dr. Jane Goodall, UN Messenger of Peace and Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute visited ACS Athens early December during her “Reasons to Hope” Tour in Greece.
In her speech, the world-renowned and award-winning scientist called everyone to action: “I have been looking at the fabulous projects of the Roots and Shoots groups. I would like to congratulate everybody for the work you are doing for making the world a better place. For those not involved in Roots and Shoots, I hope you will become members. Our programme exists currently in 80 countries and is like a growing family all around the world. The most important message of Roots and Shoots is that every single one of you has a special role to play in this life, even if you may not yet know what it is and every single one matters in the scheme of things. Every single one of you makes an impact on this planet every single day and you have a choice as to what kind of impact you make: you are either going to make things better or you do not care.” Dr. Goodall finally urged the student audience: “Go on, carry on doing good things, making the world a better place, bringing smiles to people’s faces, making little dogs wag their tails, watering little plants. “
