The citizen approach
A RESPONSIBLE AND CIVIC-MINDED APPROACH: THE INTERNATIONAL "ROOTS AND SHOOTS" PROGRAM
The “Roots and Shoots” program was created in 1991 by the “Messenger of Peace”, the British anthropologist Jane Goodall, also the founder of the “Jane Goodall Institute”.
This program encourages activities that are simple but meaningful to help respect human diversity and the environment.
The goal of the nursery is to encourage this process.
The staff members and the parents who wish to do so, will contribute to an environment that will carry valuable information to our children’s future.
As an example, the programs that are planned in our nurseries are:
- The setup of selective waste sorting and training sessions for the staff and interested parents,
- The organization of “intergenerational” meetings with retired volunteers to conduct reading sessions for children,
- The idea of putting on a small show with the children and the parents, on different themes of diversity: skin colors, music, or traditions and more.
