Many of you have likely seen the news coverage of the UN Secretary General’s cost saving measures related to events at the United Nations Secretariat Building. We are communicating with UN officials to clarify how this will impact Rotary Day at the United Nations, and will keep you updated once more information becomes available.
Today, the number of refugees worldwide is the highest since World War II. Throughout Rotary’s 75-year history with the United Nations– and beyond– Rotarians have helped people displaced by war, famine, and climate. However, Refugees are not just beneficiaries of international assistance; many have under– or un-utilized– skills to be a resource in the communities in which they settle. This November, join Rotary in recognizing People of Action who are devising community-based solutions to the global refugee crisis.
Through a series of flash talks, engaging breakouts and plenary speeches, this event offers expansive opportunities for the public to learn about and support projects in refugee settlements and beyond. Hear first-hand experiences of resettled refugees, humanitarian actors and individuals creating community-based solutions that empower refugees, leverage their talents, and connect them to opportunities.
