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 forge ahead with a virtual conference instead of face-to-face, there are 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. You can pick and choose the sessions you wish to attend - and in some cases, after the conference day itself.

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

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 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're keeping it in 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!

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.

Key Zones

There will be a lot happening during the day - some of which is listed below...

  • Main Stage

    Listen to our main speakers, who will move, entertain, inform and inspire you. Some especially suitable for young people, so ask them along.  

  • Rotary Projects Zone

    Showcase for the great work Rotary carries out in communities across the world. Up-to-date news about projects in which Rotary is/has been involved. 

  • Wellness Zone

    If you don't take care of yourself, you can't care for others. You might pick up a few tips here, and have some fun in the meantime. 

  • Sponsors' Zone

    Please do check out the information on our sponsors, who have stuck with us through thick and thin.

  • final

    Entertainment Zone

    Sit back and be entertained - a choice of genres and a lot of talent on show, especially from young people in our district. Do support them by watching the performances they have recorded.

  • Friendship Zone

    Usually we would have a House of Friendship, so instead, we have this zone. Please pop in and see the great work of organisations who have been supported by Rotary, or others who are showcasing their cause and would be very happy to be supported by Rotary in the future...! 

  • Path-7Created with Sketch.

    Join Rotary Zone

    If you are potential Rotarians or Rotaractors, please do pop in here and sign up to learn more about the work of Rotary, how you could contribute, and how you could benefit. Rotarians - please signpost this area to your friends and family ie potential Rotarians.

  • Youth Zone

    Don't miss the Youth Zone, where we showcase projects carried out by young people, and if you're a young person looking at this, why not join in with some of the Rotary family schemes? Not only will you be making a difference in the world, but you'll make new friends, and you'll find there are incredible opportunities for you to participate in life-enhancing sponsored schemes.

Who Will Attend District 1200 Conference?

Well, we hope you, for a start! 

Rotarians

If you are new to the organisation, please do come along - we've been listening to your feedback.

Conference Stalwarts

Please join in as you always do, with enthusiasm, fellowship, friendship and fun.

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!
