The Environment is now the 7th area for focus for Rotarians               

                    Preserving the planet we share together

We are committed to supporting activities that strengthen the conservation and protection of natural resources, advance ecological sustainability and foster harmony between communities and the environment.

We empower communities to access grants and other resources, embrace local solutions, and spur innovation in an effort to address the causes and reduce the effects of climate change and environmental degradation.

Together, we transform .... 

Rotary members are tackling environmental issues the way they always do: by coming up with projects, using their connections to change policy and planning for the future.

Supported by The Rotary Foundation
Rotary's own charity, The Rotary Foundation, enables our members and their community partners to take action to protect the environment. Over the last 5 years, the Foundation has given over $18 million in grant funding to environmental-related causes."

Together, we:

  • Protect and restore land, coastal, marine, and freshwater resources
  • Enhance the capacity of communities to support natural resource management and conservation
  • Support sustainable agriculture, fishing, and aquaculture practices
  • Address the cause of climate change by reducing the emission of greenhouse gases
  • Strengthen ecosystems and communities affected by climate change
  • Support education initiatives that promote behaviour that protects the environment
  • Advocate for sustainable consumption to build an economy that uses resources more efficiently
  • Address environmental justice issues and public health concerns
