World-famous primatologist and researcher Dame Jane Goodall is to visit Hungary on May 17-18, the organisers of the event said.
On May 17 the researcher will talk to reporter Tamás Frei at Eötvös Loránd University about a sustainable lifestyle in the western world which does not damage less developed countries. On the following day, she will inaugurate a nature trail named after her in Budapest’s second district. At the event primarily designed for children, Goodall will talk of her Roots and Shoots initiative for the environmental education of children. The trail will be open to visitors from April 15.
