As members of Rotary we are in a great position to organise and participate in projects to protect our environment and communities which we care so much about.
Throughout the UK Rotarians are organising projects to raise awareness and to make changes which contribute to environmental sustainability. Small actions taken by many people can make a bit difference, whether is re-cycling, re-wilding, planting trees or walking to work.
Here in the West Country it feels like nature is in control, but we have all noticed the changes in our climate here. How is this affecting our communities? How is increased tourism impacting on nature? Are we doing enough in our own lives to re-cycle what we consume and help create a circular economy?
Throughout the UK Rotary members are planning projects and raising awareness, with Eco Fairs, school book re-cycling, community vegetable gardens and litter picks. We talk about it but what are we doing in our communities?
If you are organising, or participating in an environmental sustainability project in your community, please email me about it so that we can share with others.
Here are some examples of what is going on throughout the UK which may help you if you need some ideas.
