      Caring for our World

      District 1200 Rotary Conference 2020


      Little did we know our Caring for our World theme would be quite so close to home when we chose it! It is even more relevant today, and as we forged ahead with a virtual conference instead of face-to-face, there were actually some benefits to you. It's easier to get to - no travel. You can easily invite friends and family, non-Rotarians, to take part. AND now - you can view the conference as it was recorded on the day...

      It's a conference - but not as you know it!

      Why make changes?

      We have canvassed the Rotary Clubs in the District and acted on your feedback...
      This year's focus was on inviting and involving Rotarians' families and friends and proactively welcoming non-Rotarians to this year's event.
      This year it is about active recruitment and it's now even easier to invite your friends and family to visit the conference.!

      Inspired by Challenges

      As Rotarians we have always been attracted to the challenges. The theme of this year's conference couldn't pose a bigger challenge to the world today. Our charitable work is very much part of who we are...
      Let's share that with others..

      Festing it up!

      We had planned a festival theme - and we kept that style! So you have festival-themed stages and zones you can visit. Dip in and out of them at your leisure. Listen to our wide range of speakers, learn something along the way, enjoy showcasing the great work of Rotary, and even have fun in this virtual world.

      And best reason of all - it's now 100% FREE to view!
