“The greatest danger for the future of humanity is apathy” – Jane Goodall, DBE
In July 1960 at the age of 26, Jane Goodall travelled from England to what is now Tanzania and bravely entered the little-known world of wild chimpanzees. She was equipped with nothing more than a notebook and a pair of binoculars. With her unyielding patience and characteristic optimism, she won the trust of these initially shy creatures opening a window into their sometimes strange and often familiar-seeming lives.
Today, Jane’s work revolves around inspiring action on behalf of endangered species, particularly chimpanzees, and encouraging people to do their part to make the world a better place for people, animals, and the environment we all share. Jane will deliver a lecture ‘Reasons for Hope’ for one evening only in Athens.
Jane is a UN ambassador for peace and the founder of the Jane Goodall Institute. This event is presented in collaboration with the British Council and the Jane Goodall Institute.
