Become an Environmental Sustainability Champion

Become one of the Environmental Sustainability Champions in your District or Club

Rotary has over 535 Districts and 35,000 Clubs. Our aim is at ESRAG Oceania is to help establish Environmental Sustainability Committees within each of these in our region.

We’ll help support you and your Club to take action.

Perhaps you’ve already stepped up to the plate as an ES representative in your club to ‘futureproof’ your club.

Reduce your personal footprint

Take Individual actions that reduce your Ecological Footprint

While yoiu can help create systemic change, there are also countless opportunities to be taking small personal actions that inspire your friends and family to do the same. 

We are working on some Action Guides to make it easier to identify actions that might fit your lifestyle for reducing food waste to improved energy efficiencies.


Become an ambassador

Become an Environment Ambassador

WHY do we need Ambassadors?

With Environment as a new Area of Focus (or cause) for Rotary, many Rotarians and their clubs will be keen to learn about this new area of focus, about key environmental issues, what they can do in their own lives and in their clubs to take action, how to best take action and how involvement in environmental activities may benefit them and their club.

Ambassadors will be the first port of call for these Rotarians (and Rotaractors) and their clubs. Ambassadors may be called upon to give presentations and workshops at clubs and at District events, and to help a club and/or district set up an environment committee.

In short, they will become indispensable catalysts to support action for the environment throughout Rotary.


WHAT is the Ambassadors training course all about?

The purpose of the Ambassadors’ training course is to enable and empower participants to encourage and inspire environmental leadership and action within the Rotary family.

This virtual training course is delivered by experienced presenters and facilitators.

The training course will include 5 workshops of Primary Training (7 Core Modules ) with additional Further Training (Elective Modules) and On-going Learning provided.

The course will use best-practice principles of adult learning.

Participants will be mentored during and after the training course.

Participants who complete all required tasks will receive an Ambassadors Certificate.
