  • (Franco Mariotti) Hi everybody.

  • The Roots and Shoots conference,

  • which is held here at Science North annually,

  • for the past nine years,

  • and then 2009 will be the 10th anniversary of Roots and Shoots.

  • It’s a very different and unique conference.

  • The intent is to attract young people, their teachers, their parents

  • to an event where participants are exposed to some very unique ideas,

  • ideas that influence the participants into doing exciting projects

  • in their own backyard,

  • in their own community,

  • possibly even in developing countries.

  • But the idea is to inspire,

  • to influence these young people

  • to do things positively

  • that influence the world around them.

  • Some of these projects can be simply as using native vegetation

  • to re-green a barren schoolyard or your own backyard

  • to helping a local food bank

  • to building homes in developing countries

  • or even delivering solar panels in these places.

  • The idea is that the conference exposes young people

  • to meet people who are doing these very innovative projects,

  • and the bottom line is that

  • anyone can actually do these projects

  • and influence the world positively around them.

(Franco Mariotti) Hi everybody.
