Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots UAE

Roots & Shoots encourages children to implement practical positive change for people, animals and the environment by providing teachers with free resources and a place to share their success stories with the world.

Voices of Future Generations for the Middle East

We are pleased to announce the twinning of Roots & Shoots UAE with Voices of Future Generations for the Middle East. The Emirates Literature Foundation, in partnership with the Jane Goodall Institute, will lead the outreach for both initiatives in tandem.

HH Sheikha Maytha bint Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum has been named Goodwill Ambassador for Roots & Shoots UAE, and HH Sheikha Hissa bint Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum is the Goodwill Ambassador for Voices of Future Generations Middle East.

Join Our Twinning Programme

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots manages a twinning programme between schools in the UAE and schools in the United Kingdom.

This is a great opportunity to learn about another group’s homeland, environment, wildlife, culture, religion and languages. Use technology such as email and video conferencing to give your students a personalised look at your partner school and its students and activities. The perspectives you gain from another culture will encourage your students to express themselves clearly.
