Rotary Webinar on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at 4:00 PM (Pacific Time) / 7:00 PM (Eastern Time)
The Rotary Peace Centers Program annually grants academic fellowships to up to 100 peace fellows from around the world. This is Rotary’s most significant peacebuilding program. Within Rotary’s area of focus of Peace, Rotary clubs invest in projects that address the causes of conflict, including poverty, inequality, ethnic tension, lack of access to education, and unequal distribution of resources.
This webinar will focus on proposed changes and growth of the Rotary Peace Centers and the role of clubs and districts in nominating candidates. Opportunities and strategies for Rotarians, clubs, and districts to support Peace Centers and the Peace area of focus with directed and endowed gifts will be reviewed. The new Legacy Society will be discussed.
