Goodall Inspires with Words and Actions

Message

Jane Goodall spent two days on the University of San Diego campus last week and each event she participated in — planting a tree alongside members of the USD Anthropology Club, speaking to a group of local middle- and high school children, and to a general public audience at the Jenny Craig Pavilion — provided inspiration, education and passion for a better world.

“Every single one of us makes a difference every single day,” says the 74-year-old Goodall, who is known for her work with chimpanzees and as a United Nations-designated Messenger of Peace. “If we would just spend a little time thinking about the consequences, the choices we make each day — what we buy, what we eat and wear, how we interact with animals and people — I think more people would make small changes. Even if people just make small changes, thinking about the impact they have on the planet, we’d start moving toward the kind of world that’s absolutely necessary if we care about our grandchildren.” (Full Story Inside USD)
