Squawk Pod


Throughout chimp range in Tanzania now in six other African countries whether chimps and giving people better lives in the way they choose and they become partners in conservation. And if you don't have the local people with you this no point in doing it because it's their country and then having you know being still working on getting the funding for this. What's the point if younger generations on be better stewards than we'd be? You raised an enormous amount of money including including from the corporate sponsors. Yes that's that's it. There are thirty four Jane Goodall Institutes around the world. There's eighty countries with our youth program which is kindergarten university and everything in between an all of these groups are choosing projects they choose them to make the world a better place that people animals Envir- how much how much honey you're trying to raise two hundred fifty fifty million. Yes yes okay. I want to make sure we could try to raise more for you right now. Well the point is is that these young people all over the world and we were right across China right across the US and and other parts of the world moving into the Middle East It's not that they can make a difference. They are and why should we care because we have been stealing their future. Here's he is our intellect taking Tamaz. Here's clever businesses. Here's the new technology era and something's gone wrong and what's gone wrong. Pink is this a disconnect between this clever intellect and that's what separates us more than anything from chimpanzees and other animals and love and compassion. The human I have a couple of quick questions. One is a debate here in Davos about capitalism and giving back and I'm curious sort of where you stand on that given the work that you've done all these years well whether it's working people right I think the awesome individuals philanthropists some businesses and they definitely are giving back Sometimes you can hardly differentiate whether they're doing it Sorta greenwashing shing to look good. It's actually the the passion of the CEO but quite honestly as long as they give the money and it's it's not a corrupt business because we have to be careful. I want to take money from some company. That's completely destroying the environment. Two other quick questions kids these days. You like kids to spend time outdoors Unfortunately a lot of kids. I Dunno if it's unfortunate spent time on screens including my own kids. What do you think of that right now? Well do change change we. We do know that the good psychological development is being proved. Children need to be out in the green world And then final question You travel three hundred days a year. We have a lot of people who watched the show. Who who also are road warriors? What what the trick passion mission just doing what you have to do because you care fair enough Jane Goodall?
