Do you want to help our planet? Empowering young people is a good way to start, and we have good news!
At the Jane Goodall Institute Belgium we seek to create a worldwide network of young people who have learned to care deeply for their human community, for all animals and for the environment, and who will take responsible action to care for them.
For this reason, we have developed the Roots & Shoots programme since 1991. This programme is carried out in primary and secondary schools, as well as at university level with the aim of promoting caring and compassionate citizens for the future.
As we want to implement this programme in Belgian schools, we are giving you the possibility of receiving funding for your own projects. The Mini-Grant Programme will give up to 150 € per school to implement educational projects related to JGI’s mission. We can also visit your school and give workshops in your school, you just have to tell us and we will be pleased to inspire young people for a better future!
We usually work on the following topics:
– Great apes and the importance of conservation
– Mobile phone recycling “Recycle4Chimps”
– Starting a vegetable garden
– Forests and Climate
You will also get the chance to participate in March 2018 at our Roots & Shoots Summit at the Museum of Natural Sciences (Bruxelles). We will request you a small feedback of the project after completion, including project summary and a few pictures.
Mini-Grant Programme Schedule:
– Deadline for applying: 31nd January 2018
– Deadline for reporting the project: June 2018
In case you are interested in receiving your mini-grant for your project, we need you to fill out this form and we will reply to you as soon as possible.
If you want us to visit your school for a workshop, you can write to rootsandshoots[at]janegoodall.be.
We look forward to hearing from you!
