More than ever, we’re all asking “how do we make lasting change?” Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE and UN Messenger of Peace, has more than a little experience from the past 86 years—her work has redefined how we understand humans’ relationship to animals and powerfully shaped the conservation movement. Many of us recognize photos of Dr. Goodall as a 26-year-old in a ponytail, when she set off to learn about chimpanzees in a new way: as a neighbor living in their world.
Dr. Goodall is now a world-traveling activist, raising awareness about environmental crises and the threats facing chimpanzees. She kept speaking out after the global pandemic began; this time, it’s through a screen from her childhood home in England.
Dr. Goodall recently fielded questions from over 60 young environmental changemakers during the Our Planet, Our Purpose: Changemaker Summit.
