Everyone can contribute to making a difference

Everyone can contribute to making a difference

By means of a photography exhibition that retraces her life among the chimpanzees, the international organisation Roots & Shoots pays homage to its founder, Jane Goodall, the famous primatologist and ardent protector of biodiversity.

Decorated by numerous countries and research institutes, Jane Goodall has been a United Nations Messenger of Peace since 2002. “Every living being matters, every individual has a role
to play, everybody can contribute to making a difference” – this is the message of hope that she has brought to the world. To mark the occasion, Chengdu’s famous Fangsuo bookshop is
opening its doors for various events and activities that will remind us both about the extent of the planet’s beauty and the fact that every one of us has a role to play in its preservation. Centred on
the theme of harmony as the mouthpiece for the environment, a range of French documentaries will be shown on a continuous loop. The ‘green’ week will be punctuated by workshops aimed at raising awareness about environmental protection. On Saturday, as part of a workshop entitled ‘Zero waste: it’s possible!’ the children will get involved by making everyday objects out of recycled
materials.
