The Acadia Sustainability Office works with many organizations across Canada to host partnership programs on campus. Current programs are highlighted below.
Jane Goodall Institute of Canada: Roots and Shoots
In April 2019 Jane Goodall visited Acadia for a special presentation to students. This special event, called "Inspiration in Action" highlighted way in which we can all make a positive difference for wildlife in our communities and on campus.
Jane Goodall’s Roots &]Shoots program began in 1991 when Dr. Jane met with 12 Tanzanian high school students who wanted to tackle urgent problems in their community. Since that meeting, Roots & Shoots groups have multiplied and can now be found in more than 50 countries around the world.
After the event at Acadia students planted a pollinator garden at the Acadia Sustainability and Harriet Irving Botanical Garden Offices in honour of the visit. This was our first activity as part of the Roots and Shoots program at Acadia. Learn more about the Roots and Shoots program.
