About Connect the Change

Connect the Change Action Campaign 5In 2021, we celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots! As part of the celebration, Roots & Shoots global chapters are coming together to drive real, impactful change with members worldwide.

If you are not based in the USA and want to learn about joining this global movement, you can find your country’s Roots & Shoots chapter by visiting Roots & Shoots-Global.

#ConnectTheChange focuses on highlighting inspiring young changemakers and making a difference for our planet by fighting plastic pollution, for people by growing understanding of ourselves and each other, and for other animals, particularly our pollinator friends and keystone species! By taking action for people, other animals, and the environment we share, young Roots & Shoots changemakers are showing that being bold, kind, and good for all really can change the world.

Connect the Change starts on Earth Day 2021 (April 22) and runs through June 20, 2021 with dedicated weekly actions focused on either people, other animals, or the planet. You can get ready and get started today!
