Jane Goodall

Saturday, April 10 at 11:00am

“Hers is a powerful message to protect the inherent rights of every living creature, to provide hope for future generations and to sound an urgent call against the greatest environmental threat of all – climate change. Anyone who has heard her speak, or heard her story, has been mesmerized by her life’s work and moved by her philanthropic legacy.” – Leonardo DiCaprio, for Time’s 100 Most Influential People of 2019

In 1960, 26-year-old Jane Goodall arrived in Tanzania tasked with being the first to formally observe and better understand our closest living relatives in the animal kingdom: wild chimpanzees. Goodall’s subsequent groundbreaking discoveries revealed remarkable truths about chimpanzee behavior and humankind. Now, the eminent primatologist turns her attention to humans with her popular Hopecast podcast, among other projects, revealing why she believes hope is essential fuel for a better world. Goodall shares the importance and power of making space for hope, as it spurs the indomitable human spirit to take action, even in the most grim situations. In light of current global threats – climate crisis and the sixth extinction, rampant cruelty inflicted on humans and animals – Goodall will share her hopes for change and how we all have a role to play, as individuals and as a community.

This conversation with Catherine Remak, career broadcaster and co-host of Mornings with Gary and Catherine, will be followed by a Q&A.
