We are full of enthusiasm as this recently added Area of Focus - Supporting the Environment - underlies all six of Rotary’s established Areas of Focus - Promoting Peace, Providing Clean Water and Sanitation, Fighting Disease, Saving Mothers and Children, Growing Local economies and Supporting Education.
This new Area also aligns with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. And issues relating to the environment feature every day in the media and are an important focus for all levels of government in Australia. It is essential for Rotary to remain relevant and this Area will assist this and hopefully broaden Rotary’s appeal.
