The 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow on 31 October – 12 November 2021.
Epitomizing the best of civil society, Rotary International’s nearly 46,500 Rotary and Rotaract clubs with a network of 1.4 million community and business leaders, scientists and problem-solvers, actively serve communities in 190 countries.
The environment is now one of Rotary’s causes, which includes commitments to address the causes of climate change and climate disruption and support solutions to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases.
Rotary projects also seek to strengthen the resilience of ecosystems and communities affected by climate change and climate disruption in alignment with the SDGs. Thus empowered, Rotary is an important ally to inspire ambition to address the climate crisis.
ESRAG exists within the Rotary family to employ our expertise to develop best practices to protect the environment. Our 1400 members in 80 countries guide Rotary clubs and districts to design and implement impactful service projects in support of Rotary’s humanitarian mission and the lives of all living things/flora and fauna.
We look to collaborate and work together with organizations around the world to solve environmental issues. The 5 project areas we would like to highlight and bring to the attention of the attendees of COP 26 are:
