      Caring for our World

      Delayed until early 2021

      Little did we know our Caring for the World theme would be quite so close to home when we chose it! It is even more relevant today, and as we forge ahead with a virtual conference instead of face-to-face, there are actually some benefits to you. It's easier to get to - not travel. You can easily invite friends and family, non-Rotarians, to take part. You can pick and choose the sessions you wish to attend - and in some cases, after the conference day itself. And it's now free to attend!

      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 is 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!

      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're keeping it! 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.

      Caring For Our World

      'Caring for our World' was a theme that seemed to emerge naturally, and as a result of trying to make our conference as environmentally-friendly as possible. Many of us are trying to improve our practices with this aim in mind. 
      'Caring for our World' starts with self - if we don't look after ourselves, then we aren't in a position to help others - much like the aeroplane oxygen mask analogy! This thought gave us the opportunity to develop sessions in a creative and, we hope, innovative way.
      'Caring for our World' also gives us scope to look at the many projects and initiatives within Rotary which impact positively on the world's population. 'Caring for our World' is what Rotary is all about.

      Well, we hope you, for a start!

      Conference Stalwarts

      Non-Rotarians

      This conference is designed to showcase much of our work, and to show there are lots of ways of becoming involved. Do check out the 'Join Rotary Zone' You aren't being asked to make a commitment to join, but we'd love you to learn more about us. And Rotarians - we need you to encourage others to join us - here at the conference, and of course in Rotary itself. 

      Families

      When we were planning a 'live' conference, our aim was to involve families as much as possible. After all, young people are the future Rotarians. Sadly the virtual world means that we can't deliver the exciting activity programme we had planned, but there are still many elements of this conference which should appeal to them, so do invite them to pop in and see

      Why You Should Attend

      • Inspiration

        Our presenters will inspire you with their stories, creativity, and real-world examples of their success.

      • Challenge

        Challenge your perceptions, your pre-conceptions, your thinking, yourselves.

      • Community

        Rotary fellowship, friendship, and reminding ourselves - or learning - just how warm and respectful our community is.

      • Encouragement

        It is possible to create a better world, from short-term to long-term goals. And to encourage others to join with us in Rotary. 

      • Virtual

        Being a virtual conference means it is now even easier to attend - no travel. It's easier to invite friends and families to take part. You can dip in and out of sessions as you choose. And probably a first - it's now free!
