Jane Goodall To Host Town Meeting in Washington, DC on International Peace

On September 18, Jane Goodall will be hosting a town meeting on international peace at American University in Washington, D.C.  Details are below from a web story at the School of International Service site.

Dr. Goodall, a United Nations Messenger of Peace, and founder of the Jane Goodall Institute, will preside over this one-of-a-kind event celebrating the 30th anniversary of the UN International Day of Peace resolution and the annual Roots & Shoots International Day of Peace. NBC4 Washington’s Wendy Rieger will be the event moderator.

Join Dr. Goodall for a lively conversation, with audience involvement, on the meaning of peace within ourselves, peace within our communities, and peace around the world. Dr. Goodall will also share information about her international youth program, Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots, and how every individual makes a difference in the world. In these complex times, it has never been more important to reflect on the meaning of peace for people, animals and the environment we all share.

Jane Goodall’s Town Hall Meeting: A Conversation on Peace is co-hosted by American University’s School of International Service Global Environmental Politics Program and the United Nations Association of Washington, D.C. WTOP, the most widely listened-to radio station in the nation’s capital, is a community co-host of the event.

The Woods-Brown Amphitheater is located outdoors in the heart of AU’s campus next to Bender Arena and Hughes Hall. This event will be held rain or shine. In case of inclement weather, a rain plan will be announced.

Tickets are $10 for students (with valid student ID) and $15 for the general public. All ticket proceeds benefit the Jane Goodall Institute.

Ticketing is handled directly by American University. To purchase tickets, please visit:
