Jane Goodall Institute China (JGI China) was established in 2000. Since then the Roots & Shoots program has become the flagship program of JGI China. The Roots & Shoots Program is administered by three offices in Beijing, Shanghai and Chengdu. In addition to overseeing the expansion of R&S in China, the R&S Beijing office is directly managed by JGI China.
Our mission is to educate young people about the interconnectedness between nature and human beings, and encourages them to take action for our environment, animals, and community.
R&S enioys a close relationship with many corporations, who chose to work with us towards sustainable development and fulfil their social responsibilities. Through R&S programs they can assess employees’ enthusiasm for public service and demonstrate to clients their vision for a sustainable future. Corporations provide valuable support to local communities and R&S invites corporate employees to become volunteers.
