Rotary is uniquely placed to empower local communities around the world to implement Climate Solutions that help reverse global warming. If one RI President could inspire millions of trees to be planted, imagine the opportunities that await.

Task Forces and Initiatives
“Rotarians understand that the whole world is their backyard. They can see the effects of climate change in communities they care about, and they haven’t waited to take action. They’re tackling the problem the way they always do: coming up with projects, using their connections to change policy — and planning for the future.” – ROTARY.ORG
ESRAG has partnered with Project Drawdown to support and empower Rotary Clubs and Districts to implement a wide range of Climate Solutions.
Together we can help the world reach “Drawdown”— the point in the future when levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere stop climbing and start to steadily decline, thereby stopping catastrophic climate change — as quickly, safely, and equitably as possible.
