Whatever your age, your interests, your experience and knowledge there will be something for us all to learn and some suggested actions to take.

Peace means something different to each one of us and there are countless underlying causes of conflict in ourselves, in our families, in our communities and across the globe. As a humanitarian organisation Rotary believes that when people take action to address those underlying causes we are working to create peace.

Peace is much more than the absence of war or armed conflict. Peace is freedom, peace is having access to education, to clean water, having sufficient food, being able to provide for our families, peace is protecting our environment, peace is giving our children hope for their future and their own voice to shape their tomorrows.

Our Keynote speaker

Steve Killelea is a global philanthropist, international entrepreneur and thought leader. He is the Founder and Executive Chairman of the global think tank, the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) whose publications include the Global Peace Index. He has reshaped the entire concept of peace and Rotary has partnered with the IEP to help address the root causes of conflict and create conditions that foster peace. Steve has said “The Rotary programmes, built on Positive Peace, are an invaluable contribution to global peace.”

Rotary International Vice President 2022/23 Nicki Scott will be joining Steve to answer some of your questions.

We will hear about service projects large and small in our local communities and internationally. We will learn how we can all make a difference and how we can have a bigger impact by understanding the ripples of positive effect even small actions can have.

We will be joined by Charlie Allen, the Director of Partnerships at the IEP, who is also a Rotarian and a Rotary Peace Fellow. Charlie will help us all enjoy being part of the seminar, contributing our thoughts and broadening our own understanding of how we can help create environments where peace can happen.

Personal short stories about service projects will illustrate the wide variety of practical things Rotary and others are doing to address some of those underlying causes of conflict. Watch this space for more details soon.

Tickets are free of charge and open to all. Each registration gives you personal front row access to the event live through Zoom.
