Earth Day 2018 - President Ian Riseley Says "Thank you!"



Rotary International President-Elect Barry Rassin Announces 2018-2019 Theme:  Be an Inspiration!

Below is an excerpt from President-Elect Barry Rassin's address to the San Diego Assembly.

"Rotary has focused heavily on sustainability in its humanitarian work in recent years. Now," Rassin said, "Rotarians must acknowledge some hard realities about pollution, environmental degradation, and climate change." He noted that 80 percent of his own country is within one meter of sea level. "With sea levels projected to rise two meters by 2100," he said, “my country is going to be gone in 50 years, along with most of the islands in the Caribbean and coastal cities and low-lying areas all over the world.”

Rassin urged leaders to look at all of Rotary’s service as part of a larger global system. He said that this means the incoming district governors must be an inspiration not only to clubs, but also to their communities. “We want the good we do to last. We want to make the world a better place. Not just here, not just for us, but everywhere, for everyone, for generations.”
