Drawing on decades of work by the world’s most famous living ethologist and environmentalist, Jane Goodall – Reasons for Hope is an uplifting journey around the globe to highlight good news stories that will inspire viewers to make a difference in the world around them.
Featured stories — such as the worldwide-recognized Sudbury regreening story, the re-introduction of the American bison by the Blackfeet Nation, the northern bald ibis’ migration over the Alps, and inspiring youth-led initiatives involved in Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots — are accompanied by historic footage of Jane’s beginnings as a chimpanzee researcher.
From start to finish, the film reinforces the four reasons for hope, according to Jane, to foster tremendous optimism for the future: the amazing human intellect, the resilience of nature, the power and dedication of young people, and the indomitable human spirit.
Jane revolutionized how we view the world. Join her on this adventure of inspiration and hope.
