2. Campbell Whalley

With great sadness, we wish to inform you that our dear friend and Roots & Shoots advocate, Campbell Whalley, passed away on May 24. Campbell’s friendship with Jane Goodall began more than 50 years ago when Jane first moved to Africa. Campbell was a game warden in Tanzania at the time and taught Jane much about the African bush, cultures and people. More recently, Campbell championed our Roots & Shoots program by driving the program in the Marree School in South Australia.

We will miss Campbell and send our love to his wife Judy and family.

4. World Environment Day

JGI celebrated World Environment Day on June 5 with a screening of Jane’s Journey in Mornington, Victoria, followed by a presentation and Q&A session with Natalie Houghton about JGI Australia.
We’d like to thank Sean Wilmore from the Thin Green Line Foundation, the Mornington Shire Council and Emma Malone from the Toorak College Roots & Shoots group for supporting this event.

5. JGI Global Conference

Natalie Houghton CEO, along with 48 delegates from other JGI countries attended the 2012 JGI Global Meeting held in Barcelona, Spain from the 3rd-7th May. It was a great opportunity to meet and hear other JGI representatives about the African Programs and Roots & Shoots projects. The conference also focused on the creation of the JGI Global body which will be based in the UK. Our Chairman, Dr Alicia Kennedy, will be on the JGI Global Board giving a voice for Australia and the Asia Pacific region.

At the conclusion of the conference, Jane reminded us that “Everyone in the JGI global family IS making a difference and positively changing the world.”
