Parents' Place owner Angie Chang is dedicated to environmental awareness, and to passing on this passion to children. After much preparation, she is ready to make and English-language Roots and Shoots group happen in Neihu, Taiwan. Your kids don't have to be native speakers of English, but it's definitely helpful to be fairly fluent/comfortable in an English-speaking environment.
I have been wanting to run a Roots and Shoots program at Parents Place for a while now and I would like to recruit a few parents to volunteer to help run it. It will be free of charge and available for all English speaking, school aged children in Taipei. I think it would be best to have several parents running it as all parents have so many other commitments.
Please contact Angie through her website's contact page, or by contacting her on the Parents' Place Facebook page.

What is Roots & Shoots?
Roots creep underground everywhere and make a firm foundation. Shoots seem very weak, but to reach the light, they can break open brick walls. Imagine that the brick walls are all the problems we have inflicted on our planet. Hundreds of thousands of roots & shoots, hundreds of thousands of young people around the world, can break through these walls. We CAN change the world. - Dr. JaneThe Roots & Shoots program is about making positive change happen—for our people, for animals and for the environment. With tens of thousands of young people in more than 120 countries, the Roots & Shoots network connects youth of all ages who share a desire to create a better world. Young people identify problems in their communities and take action. Through service projects, youth-led campaigns and an interactive website, Roots & Shoots members are making a difference across the globe.
