Years ago, some Rotary Fellowships took on a project-oriented focus, and eventually became Rotary Action Groups. One relatively new Rotary Action Group is ESRAG, the Environmental Sustainability Rotary Action Group. ESRAG is growing rapidly, consistent with Rotary International’s newest Seventh Area of Focus, supporting the environment. Supporting the environment joins other Areas of Focus, including: promoting peace; fighting disease; fostering clean water, sanitation and hygiene; saving mothers and children; supporting education; and growing local economies. You can join ESRAG: https://esragdev.com/.
On Saturday, November 6, our Zone 26&27 Big West Chapter of ESRAG will hold an Ecology Day Conference for Rotarians, Rotaractors, Interactors, and anyone interested. Anyone can sign up for the conference at https://bit.ly/3AOdxxT.
Since joining ESRAG, not only have I zoomed with the Rotary Zones 26&27 ESRAG chapter, but I’ve reviewed an ambitious Rotary river study project south of Mumbai and a Rotary artificial reef project, submerging a 180’ naval ship. Networking with the diverse expertise of Rotarians worldwide enhances the potential for local action and it’s fun.
District 5020 Rotary club members might also want to consider forming a club Rotary Climate Action Teamthrough ESRAG’s partner Rotary effort, the Climate Action Team Network, at https://rcatnow.com.
