Welcome to ESRAG!

Welcome to the Environmental Sustainability Rotarian Action Group (ESRAG)!

We formed ESRAG to empower members of the Rotary Family worldwide to take actions to sustain our environment, particularly to stabilize our climate.  

ESRAG provides an organizing point and informational resources to share information with clubs and communities about sustainable practices and the global humanitarian crisis of climate change.

Our action model:  Identify environmental leaders within the Rotary world, assist them in initiating environmental service projects that are meaningful to THEM, help where we can, and acknowledge and publicize their awesome work.

How can you help ESRAG?
