Our ED Tara Golshan, reflected on the week with Dr Jane

I have had the fortune of working with Dr Jane for seventeen years and what a privilege it has been.

We have been visiting the UAE together since 2011 when we first attended the Eye on Earth Summit in Abu Dhabi. Jane has an incredible magic about her that never fails to inspire every person she meets. From Presidents to Royalty, to the youngest student members of Roots & Shoots, she always displays her own brand of compassion and empathy; encouraging positive action for the environment and more importantly, hope and inspiration, especially to those in challenging environments and climates, the UAE being a good example of this. Her energy and enthusiasm never wavers, and her commitment to visit each and every school and speak to individual students is steady and unfailing, no matter the circumstances. I am always awed by her level of commitment where many of us tire way before a 12-14 hour day is complete.

Thank you Jane for all that you do and continue to do for our Planet and its inhabitants.
