Mailbag: From Argentina to the UK, Jane Answers Hopecasters Messages About Making Space For Love And Shares Her Proudest Moment

For this Mailbag episode, Dr. Jane Goodall is joined by honorary “Hopecaster in Chief” Shawn Sweeney, the Associate Vice President of Communications & Policy for the Jane Goodall Institute. Shawn and Dr. Goodall listen to inspiring and insightful messages from Hopecasters around the world. A young Hopecaster from Mexico thanks Dr. Jane for being her reason for hope by always making space for love and kindness. She also hears from a Hopecaster in Canada who asks Jane how she manages her mental health when the state of the world seems so negative. And at just 11 years old, Hopecaster Heidi from the UK is already taking action by designing and selling postcards to raise money for conservation, very much in line with the work of JGI’s Roots & Shoots program. Her question inspires Jane to reminisce upon one of the proudest moments of her life.
