Becoming Inspiring A Shared Planet

Introduction

Dr. Jane Goodall is a noted humanitarian, environmentalist, and has spent many years observing the behaviour of chimpanzees in their native habitat. In the past few decades, Jane has been increasingly concerned about the damage to the environment and since then she has devoted her time to campaigning and acting as an advocate for environmental charities and concerns. She has an exhaustive travelling schedule and speaks on average 300 days a year, encouraging people to do what they can to create a better world. This exhibition is the first ever holistic presentation of the early scientific discoveries of Dr. Jane Goodall, and it showcase her dedicated contribution in environmental conservation and youth empowerment through various interactives. With Dr. Goodall’s story, we wish to empower Hong Kong youth to take constructive actions in protecting the wildlife and our environment and also live a sustainable lifestyle.
