    Friday, 13 March, 2020 - 19:30
    Campus: Brussels Humanities, Sciences & Engineering Campus
    Aula Q

    Jane Goodall is a world famous ethologist who travels the Earth, speaking about the threats facing chimpanzees, environmental crises and her reasons for hope. She began her landmark study of chimpanzees in the wild at the age of 26 in Gombe, Tanzania. Her discovery in 1960 that chimpanzees make and use tools rocked the scientific world and redefined the relationship between humans and animals.

    Today, in her books and speeches, she emphasizes the interconnectedness of all living things and the collective power of individual action. Dr. Jane Goodall, PHD, DBE, is founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace.
