"Roots creep underground everywhere and make a firm foundation.  Shoots seem very weak but to reach the light they can break through brick walls.  Imagine that the brick walls are all the problems we have inflicted on our planet.  Hundreds and thousands of roots and shoots, hundreds and thousands of young people around the world, can break through these walls.  You can  change the world."
 - Jane Goodall, UN Messenger of Peace.


We, the Roots & Shoots University Coordinators at Western Connecticut State University, are the link between the college Roots & Shoots groups throughout the nation and around the world.  We support, through local activities and events, the goals of Roots & Shoots, an international program started by the Jane Goodall Institute.
