对于地球和环境的未来，珍·古道尔说过一句话：There is a growing number of people, especially young people, who are aware of these problems and are fighting for the survival of our only home, Planet Earth. We must all join that fight before it is too late.（越来越多的人，特别是青年人，认识到这个世界正面临危机，他们正在为人类唯一的家园地球而战。趁如今为时未晚，我们都必须加入这场战斗。）
60 years ago, the 26-year-old Jane Goodall’s first encountered chimpanzees in Gombe. Her research later went on to change and inspire the world. Roots & Shoots will celebrate this remarkable achievement in 2020 and the 26th anniversary of Roots & Shoots China.
We wish to select 3-5 young female scientists who aspire to be like Jane and send them from China to Africa and ultimately meet Jane in Gombe. Roots & Shoots will act the role of Dr. Leaky to Jane 60 years ago and support these young women in their research projects; who will one day become reputable researcher, educators or leaders of the world. They will become the Youth Leaders that Jane has always dreamed for her Roots & Shoots members. They may even become the next Jane Goodall of China!
