Rotary is dedicated to causes that build international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world to support our peace efforts and end polio forever.
In order to maximize our local and global impact RI has identified seven areas of focus. That is why it is highly recommended thar clubs focus their service efforts in these seven areas.
Peacebuilding and conflict prevention
Disease prevention and treatment
Water, sanitation, and hygiene
Maternal and child health
Basic education and literacy
Community economic development
Supporting the Environment
By the way all projects that are related to these areas are also worth being covered by a global grants.
The latest addition to these areas of focus took place last year: Supporting the environment
I think we all agree that clean, healthy water and air are the foundation for all life. That is why this area of focus is so important. But what falls under this category?
Basically all projects that are
Protecting and restoring land, coastal, marine, and freshwater resources
Enhancing the capacity of communities to support natural resource management and conservation
Supporting sustainable agriculture, fishing, and aquaculture practices
Addressing the cause of climate change by reducing the emission of greenhouse gases
Strengthening ecosystems and communities affected by climate change
Supporting education initiatives that promote behavior that protects the environment
Advocating for sustainable consumption to build an economy that uses resources more efficiently
Addressing environmental justice issues and public health concerns
In short all projects that
strengthen the conversation and protection of natural resources
Advance ecological sustainability
Forster harmony between communities and the environment
The goal is to reduce effects of climate change and environmental degradation. A total of 18.4 MUSD of global grant funding was allocated to environmental-related causes within the last five years. But what are concrete examples?
If you check the in the internet you will find many different, starting with the well know planting a tree action days/afternoons, over reducing food waste up to supporting the installation of solar panels in disadvantaged communities. However, I am happy to have some experienced Rotaractors with me today who have already some experience with environmental projects, so Devankar tell us, what was a project your club carried out?
