togetherTalks returns for Series 2 on 6th October

After a break over the summer, togetherTalks is back with a new and exciting second series of thought-provoking, global conversations, brought to you by Rotary.

Tens of thousands of viewers tuned in, both live and on demand, on the Rotary Great Britain and Ireland YouTube channel for the inaugural Series 1 togetherTalks events.

The recordings of the fascinating and diverse togetherTalks events are available to play on demand. Covering everything from volunteering to storytelling, and organ donation to social enterprise – there is something to inform, entertain and inspire you, whether you’re tuning in at home, on the go, or as part of an online club meeting.

Series 2 of togetherTalks will see events every fortnight, and will kick off on Tuesday, 6th October at 19:05 with celebrity farmer Adam Henson.

Adam is perhaps the best known farmer in the UK as a presenter on BBC TV’s Countryfile broadcast to millions of viewers every Sunday.

Adam is also an advocate for the British food industry and a strong believer in food integrity. We will be talking about the topic of “From Field to Fork – the Importance of Understanding Where Food Comes From” – an event certain to provide real food for thought!

Then on 20th October, in advance of World Polio Day on 24th October, we will be hosting Dr. Michel Zaffran, Director of Polio Eradication for the World Health Organization, to discuss the important topic of how the lessons learned from polio can help in tackling COVID-19.

The ongoing legacy of Rotary’s End Polio Now campaign is having an incredible difference in global, public health for the betterment of humankind.
