Rotary World Savers is an encyclopaedia of environmental actions, backed up by informative articles, that anyone can do to help ‘save the world’.
The initiative, facilitated by Rugby Dunsmore Rotary Club (RDRC), shares one positive action per week, providing a clear direction on how we can all have a positive impact on the environment.
The idea came about when RDRC President Mike Folly discovered David Head’s website www.365actions.org which published an action per day to help individuals to alleviate the effects of mankind on climate change during 2021.
The need for climate change is the most pressing and urgent issue facing mankind at present.”
The club saw how David’s amazing idea could be taken to a wider audience to increase its impact which lead to David joining the club and rolling 365actions.org into 2022 as Rotary World Savers.
The project brings together like-minded people who are concerned about climate change, and answers the question ‘what can I do about climate change, plastic, and other environmental issues?’
There are actions for children, families, schools, house owners and landlords and businesses, with articles covering everything from recycling tips to larger projects but concentration is mainly on simple things everyone can do at little or no cost.
The first action of this year was published on the 5th of January and there will be new action’s published every Wednesday.
There is no charge or long-term commitment that comes with joining Rotary World Savers, it’s just a place where people who want to make a difference can come together and feel they are contributing to a better future.
Mike Folly said: “It’s probably the most valuable present anyone can give to everyone at the moment! The need for climate change is the most pressing and urgent issue facing mankind at present, we all know it, but seem powerless to do anything about it as individuals!
“By becoming a Rotary World Saver we can find out more about how we can help and by taking action along with other like minded people we will make a difference. And as our critical mass grows, we will gain a very powerful voice that everyone will need to listen to carefully!”
Mike also revealed that The Hinckley & Rugby Building Society have stepped up to be the project’s s lead sponsor and supporter: “Without them we could not have got this project on the road. Their support and help are invaluable and their mission to become an environmentally friendly organisation is an example to any business!”
