Join a hero of the environmental movement, conservationist Dr Jane Goodall DBE, as she shares an indispensable message of hope.

 ‘One of the most impactful and important leaders on the planet.’ Leonardo DiCaprio 

World-renowned ethologist and conservationist Dr Jane Goodall, DBE, Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and a UN Messenger of Peace, has spent more than a half-century warning of our impact on our planet. From her famous encounters and research into the wild chimpanzees in the forests of Gombe which began more than sixty years ago and continues to this day, to her tireless campaigning for the environment in her late eighties, Jane has become the godmother to a new generation of climate activists.

In this livestream In Conversation event, Jane will draw on the wisdom of a lifetime dedicated to the natural world and its inhabitants, teaching us how to find strength in the face of the climate crisis, and explaining why she still has hope. She will weave together stories from her travels and activism, offering us a new understanding of the crisis we face and a compelling path forward for us all to create hope in our own lives and in the world.

The world needs a manifesto of hope now more than ever. Jane Goodall joins us to show that even in the face of great adversity, we can find hope in human nature, and in nature itself.

Dr Jane Goodall

Conversationist and Founder, the Jane Goodall Institute

Dr Jane Goodall, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute & UN Messenger of Peace, was born in the UK. In July 1960 at the age of 26 she travelled to what is now Tanzania, and ventured into the forests of Gombe and the world of wild chimpanzees. From those early days in the remote forests of Gombe, to the lecture halls of Cambridge (where she earned a PhD in ethology with no prior degree) and Stanford (as a visiting professor in human biology), through 60 years of ground-breaking research, Dr Goodall has become one of the most recognised living scientists in the world.
