The Future of Activism: Engaging Young People to Change the World
Kate Garland and Asha Mortel are two young animal activists and the leaders of @rootsandshoots . Kate is the State Coordinator for Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots and an aspiring evolutionary scientist. Through both research and outreach, she wants to ensure that the spectacular show of Australia’s and the world’s diversity does not have a final curtain call. Asha is a 17-year-old student, Eco-Warrior and member of the Roots & Shoots National Youth Leadership Council. For the past two years, Asha has traveled to the small town of Tembak, Borneo to volunteer at local schools and orangutan rehabilitation centres, and used these experiences to inspire students here in Australia. Their presentation explains how Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots engages young people to become our future activists – drawing on examples of projects here in Queensland and around the world. #animalactivistsforum #animalactivistsforum2016 #activists #activism #activistsforum #animalwelfare #animalrights #animaljustice #animalliberation #rootsandshoots #janegoodall
