Rotary Zone 28 & 32 Finally, our Alaska "Life on Land" symposium has been postponed until August 31-September 3, 2023, at the Anchorage Sheraton and Spa, with 3 days pre and post-event opportunities.

The weather will be warmer, still plenty of daylight but also darkness for any northern lights. We will have great speakers on the Arctic and Environmental Sustainability, dinner in a home hosted by Rotarians, a special tour to see glaciers and wildlife, and the ability to match with a company for a one-way cruise from or to Alaska (some September deals are great!) or travel further north to meet up with local Rotarians in Fairbanks or Utqiagvik.

There's plenty of time to get ready, so grab your friends and start planning!  Details coming soon on the Zone website,

 Rotary Life on Land Symposium - Connecting the World through Sustainability

August 31, to September 3, 2023

Rotary International Zones 28/32

Welcome by Chair, Diane Fejes


How does sustainable living benefit humanity?

Nature has a finite capacity to regenerate itself in the face of pressures on its land, water, and air resources.


Our special guest speakers will include from Rotary International:

2023-24 President Gordon McInally, Zone 28/32 Director Drew Kessler and Director-Elect Chris Etienne.

In addition, we will hear from representatives of Rotary’s  Environmental Sustainability Rotary Action Group(ESRAG), the United Nations, and Alaska’s Indigenous leadership who are critical in helping teach us to find the way toward a sustainable future.  

Alaska is globally significant for its large tracts of intact habitats and their role in conserving biodiversity and storing carbon while supporting traditional and cultural uses.   What better place to learn about environmental sustainability while enjoying the beauty of Alaska with your fellow Rotarians.

Begin your adventure with the optional cruise exploring the deep green of the coastal mountains, the varying blues of our glaciers and the wonderful wildlife scenery that is Alaska.  Then join our local Rotarians for a Dinner in the home and talk to real Alaskan residents to find out all you ever wanted to know about the arctic and hiking, fishing or hunting in the wilderness.

Our local committee is working hard to have a meaningful hands-on project. We will pair you with local Rotarians to supply the extra boots or tools that you may need.

Come early or Stay longer to add on our Alaska State Fair with the GIGANTIC vegetables – see 2100 lb., pumpkins , or 952 kg for you Canadians, eh?   

JOIN us and be inspired by our vast landscapes, Alaska Native cultures, wildlife, and wild places.

Alaska is the place to be August 31, 2023!
