Regional Chapters

ESRAG has established twelve Regional Chapters to support our work within Rotary on environmental sustainability issues,  associated with a particular geographic area. When ESRAG members meet and talk with each other in real time, we find new friendships, and surprising approaches to daunting issues.  The Regional Chapters foster these opportunities through regular online calls. 

ESRAG Committees and Working Groups
