ESRAG’s promotes environmental sustainability, awareness of
climate change, and actions to reduce greenhouse gas
emissions to mitigate climate disruption.
TAKE ACTION to create a better world for future generations
At ESRAG we are a small team of Rotarians who enthusiastically believe that individual actions can truly make a difference.
We also believe that ESRAG provides an unrivalled opportunity as changemakers to create substantial meaningful impact at a time that the world needs to heal.
So what can YOU do to take meaningful action?
Get Involved and help us build the ESRAG network of changemakers
Whatever your skills or passions we have roles where you can get involved.
You can help us grow the network and create a platform that supports the efforts of Districts and Clubs in our region to grow and to implement meaningful projects and club activities that support Environmental Sustainability
Become one of the ES Champions in your District or Club
Rotary has over 535 Districts and 35,000 Clubs. Our aim is at ESRAG ANZPI is to help establish Environmental Sustainability Committees within each of these in our region.
We’ll help support you and your Club to take action.
Perhaps you’ve already stepped up to the plate as an ES representative in your club to ‘futureproof’ your club.
Take Individual actions that reduce your Ecological Footprint
While yoiu can help create systemic change, there are also countless opportunities to be taking small personal actions that inspire your friends and family to do the same.
We are working on some Action guides to make it easier to identify actions that might fit your lifestyle for reducing food waste to improved energy efficiencies.
Help futureproof your Club and grow your membership
At ESRAG we are here to help support Clubs like yours establish Environmental Sustainability programs and projects that can be used to attract new changemakers to your club.
At ESRAG , our priority is Enviromental Sustainability but we understand that for Rotary to deliver on its potential in this area, we also need Membership Sustainability!
With the recent announcement, Rotary Leadsership has identified ‘Supporting The Environment’ as a critical aspect of its plans to build a stroinger Rotary of the future. The COVID pandemic has forced us to adopt Zoom and other Video conferencing tools that make it easier to collaborate beyond our Club and share ideas and projects
So what can YOUR CLUB do to take meaningful action?
Become an ‘EnviroClub’ via District programs
We are working with Districts in the ANZPI region to establish ‘EnviroClub Awards’. In this program clubs can take actions that enable them to qualify as ‘EnviroClubs’ and promote this on their website.
Find out more about the ‘pilot programs’ being implemented in:
- District 9800 (coming soon)
- District 9810
Implement Projects, Ideas and Activities
Whether it’s encouraging your club members to participate in programs like the ‘Colour Your World’ initiative to plant pollinator friendly plants this Spring or participate in Plastic Pickup sessions, we will be working to make it easy for your Club to take action that’s both fun and makes a difference to Enviromental Sustainability.

At ESRAG one of our key strategies is to establish Collaborative Partnerships with Local Governments, NGO’s and Business to maximise positive social and enviromental outcomes.
