Shanghai Roots & Shoots

Shanghai Roots & Shoots


Established in 1999 as the first legally registered foreign-affiliated non-profit organization in China, R&S keeps the approach simple: to bring together resources, businesses, schools and passionate individuals to promote environmental learning and improve the quality of life for China's citizens. Always remaining adaptive, R&S takes on new challenges arising in the community while ensuring the sustainable management of existing projects.

In the face of troubling and challenging threats to the physical environment, Shanghai Roots & Shoots inspires passion for the environment and community service in the future leaders of China through educational and participatory programs.


We will expand Roots & Shoots to local schools in Shanghai in a sustainable way and monitor the activities therein.

Long-Term Impact

Overall, our organization seeks to implement positive change through active learning about, caring for, and interacting with the environment, enhance understanding between individuals of different cultures, ethnic groups, religions, socio-economic levels, and nations through our global communication network, and to help young people develop self-respect, self-confidence, and hope for the future.

Important Notice about Projects in China

The Government of People’s Republic of China has implemented new regulations for foreign NGOs operating in China. GlobalGiving must receive Government approval before we can disburse funds to organizations registered in Mainland China. This means that the disbursement of your donation to this project may be slightly delayed while we obtain the appropriate approval.
