Unit Four: Perseverance
“The planet’s resources are running out. And so if we truly care about the future of our planet we must stop leaving it to ‘them’ out there to solve all the problems. It is up to us to save the world for tomorrow: it’s up to you and me.” Dr. Jane Goodall, Reason for Hope
Arrow Purpose of Activity

When you finish a Roots & Shoots project, it is always a good idea to connect to your community by sharing your work with others. You will then learn about how Dr. Jane has persevered through many challenges, and you will reflect on perseverance in your own life.
