Rotary GB&I Action Plan

As People of Action, we understand that fulfilling that vision requires a plan.

More than a century ago, we pioneered a new model of service leadership grounded in person-to-person connections. Today, those connections are a network that spans the globe—bridging cultural, linguistic, generational, and geographic barriers—and shares the vision of a better world.

In Great Britain and Ireland, it is important that we harness and adapt the global Rotary Action Plan, to pave a way forward.
