Meet Dr. Jane. She's one of the most accomplished scientists and conservationists of our time. And now, she's your instructor.
Topics include: Introduction
In case you're wondering what I'm going to be talking about in this MasterClass, I want to tell you a little bit about how it all began, about my life's journey, and how it led me to the forests of Gombe to study the chimpanzees there, how I did it. I'd like to share with you a little bit about some of the amazing things that I've been able to find out about these closest relatives of ours. And I'd like to tell you why it was I felt I had to leave the forest that I love-- because chimpanzees are decreasing in numbers right across Africa-- how I got to understand about extinction, about the destruction of the environment, about all the harm that we humans have inflicted on Mother Earth. And most importantly, I'd like to share with you what we can all do together to right the wrongs, to heal some of the harm, and especially, what you can do to make this a better world. I'm Jane Goodall, and this is my MasterClass.
There is still a window of time. Nature can win if we give her a chance. In her first ever online class, Dr. Jane Goodall teaches how you can conserve the environment. She also shares her research on the behavioral patterns of chimpanzees and what they taught her about conservation. You'll learn how to act locally and protect the planet.
Jane is an inspiration! Her sound advice on how to approach and practice change is excellent and makes implementation seem achievable. Taking her class has been life-changing.
Jane has taught me so much. I've always been a passionate animal advocate but now my commitment to the environment has been strengthened and I realize that offering my message through ways of the heart will be more effective than through anger or grief. I am also inspired to get involved in Roots and Shoots. Thank you so much for this incredibly meaningful Masterclass.
An incredibly moving and inspiring picture of what we need to do in order to become a better world. Change starts within each of us. Jane's style and story is beautiful and motivating.
... that my everyday choices can make a difference, that being courageous pays off and little steps can lead to big changes.
