Rotary has a history of taking on HUGE challenges!

And now our planet needs Rotary more than ever.

Rotary launched Polio Plus in 1985.  Through decades of commitment and hard work by Rotarians and our strategic partners, more than 2.5 billion children have received the oral polio vaccine and we have eradicated 99.9% of polio cases worldwide.


Our Next Global Challenge:  CLIMATE CHANGE


We are the largest service organization in the world with 1.2 million members and we can make more of an impact than any other organization!

Rotarians are people of action. We have created an action plan that you and your members can start TODAY to help save our planet.

Climate Change and Peace

Climate change is one of the most persistent and exponentially growing threats to peace and security in our century. On a global scale, climate change affects all areas of peace building social conflict, large-scale migration, security, and development.

Climate Change is widely accepted to be a “threat multiplier” of existing risks. For example it can intensify political instability by putting extra stress due to depletion in resources, financial losses, migration and more. And the most vulnerable are at the highest risk of being affected.
