The Jane Goodall Story: From Africa to Hong Kong and Around the Globe

An Anthropological Talk by Joyce Lau of the Jane Goodall Institute (Hong Kong)

Presented by the Hong Kong Anthropological Society and the Hong Kong Museum of History

Wednesday 31 August 2011, 7:00pm8:00pm (free admission, no registration required)
Hong Kong Museum of History
Lecture Hall, Ground Floor, 100 Chatham Road, Tsim Sha Tsui

In 1960, 26-year-old Jane Goodall started her groundbreaking study of wild chimpanzees in Tanzania. Her work would prove to be more successful than anyone could have possibly imagined. She would become known as "the woman who redefined man". As much as she loved her work, she decided to give up her career as a primatologist and became an activist some 20 years ago. Today, her work revolves around mobilizing action on behalf of not only chimpanzees, but of all animals, people and the environment. Her youth education program, "Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots", empowers young people to create positive change. In Hong Kong and across the globe, hundreds of thousands of Roots & Shoots members are taking action to address issues ranging from homelessness to countryside cleanups. The talk will look at the extraordinary life of Jane Goodall and the global movement she started.

The Lecture is conducted in English.
