Arizona State University welcomes renowned primatologist and conservationist Jane Goodall as a guest in its TomorrowTalks series.
Goodall will discuss "The Book of Hope: A Survival Guide for Trying Times" in an online event on Wednesday, Nov. 17 at 10:30 a.m. Arizona / MST (9:30 a.m. PDT / 11:30 a.m. CDT / 12:30 p.m. EDT), in conversation with ASU scholars and students.
Goodall’s discovery in 1960 that chimpanzees make and use tools rocked the scientific world and redefined the relationship between humans and animals. In 1977, she established the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI), a global non-profit organization that advances greater understanding and protection of great apes and their habitats, environmental and animal advocacy, community-led conservation, and youth empowerment.
Goodall travels the world, speaking about the threats facing chimpanzees, environmental crises and her reasons for hope. In her books and speeches, she emphasizes the interconnectedness of all living things and the collective power of individual action.
TomorrowTalks are a student-engagement initiative led by the Division of Humanities in The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at ASU and hosted by ASU's Department of English in partnership with Macmillan Publishers. Goodall's talk is also supported by the Institute of Human Origins at ASU, which houses the Jane Goodall Institute's Gombe Research Archive and Database.
