As we stand on the cusp of eliminating polio, we find ourselves poised for our next challenge. The time is right to move toward realizing a new vision that brings more people together, increases our impact, and creates lasting change around the world. To achieve the vision of Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation, we have set four priorities that will direct our work over the coming years
As People of Action we make decisions grounded in evidence.
Let’s build the practices, infrastructure, and capacity needed to define, measure, track, and analyze data from our service projects in a much more effective way.
As People of Action we are inclusive, engaging, compassionate, and ambitious on behalf of the world.
Let’s share our values with new audiences, create new ways to bring people together to experience the power of Rotary, and prove we are an organization that’s inclusive, engaging, compassionate, and ambitious on behalf of the world.
As People of Action we create meaningful relationships across decades and continents.
Let’s use every encounter as an opportunity to show people what Rotary can do for them as individuals and as members of our communities.
As People of Action we seek new perspectives and new ideas that can strengthen Rotary and create lasting change.
Let’s work to create a culture of research, innovation, and willingness to take risks in your club to better serve your community.
People of Action know that achieving any vision, big or small, requires a plan.
We pioneered a model of service leadership more than a century ago based on person-to-person connections. That model is just as powerful today as ever. Except now, those individual connections span the globe. Today’s Rotary doesn’t just reach out to act on communities’ needs close to home; we transcend borders, generations, languages, cultures, and historic differences to create hope for a better world.
When we imagined where Rotary is going in the next 100 years, we developed a plan built on four priorities: increasing our impact, expanding our reach, enhancing participant engagement, and increasing our ability to adapt.
