Tuesday Talks - Jan. 11, 2022 - Supporting the Environment: Are we committed to our own success?

Nilam Bedi, Chair, and all of the members of the District 7070 Areas of Focus Environment Committee invite YOU to hear our keynote speaker,  Dr. Mathis Wackernagel, Founder and President, Global Footprint Network. Dr. Wackernagel is an internationally recognized authority on developing metrics for ecological sustaianbility who published extensively and won numerous award for his work. 

Title:   Supporting the Environment: Are we committed to our own success?

The Topic of his Talk: The future has never been more predictable than today. We know that people will want to eat, sleep, be safely sheltered, and move around.. They will also live in a world with more extreme weather and climate change, as well as fewer ecological resources. We already have a massive overshoot of our demands upon the planet relative to what it can sustain. Dialling back this overshoot, even if we do it ultra-fast, will not be a quick-fix for the extreme weather and fewer ecological resources. What we also know for sure: humanity will get out of overshoot one way or another - the choice is merely whether it will be by design or through disaster. Therefore, communities, corporations or countries that do not prepare for this predictable future will be at a large disadvantage. What are we waiting for? What are our options? 

Be sure to register to hear Dr. Wackernagel Dr. Wackernagel explore these questions and learn how Rotarians can get involved in tackling the threats to our planet.

Virtual Training of District 7070 Visioning Team Facilitators on Saturday, January 15, 2022, 9 am – 11 am

Interested in becoming a Club Visioning facilitator?

It is now time for us in D7070 to rebuild our Club Visioning Team.  We will be holding a two hour virtual training of facilitators on Saturday, January 15, 2022, 9 am – 11 am. The training will mainly be on the new virtual version; however, the process is more or less the same for sessions where Club members meet in person.

For many years, District 7070 ran a very successful and appreciated Club Visioning program.  Two thirds of the Clubs in the District participated in the program.  Some Clubs went through the process each third or fourth year.  Over 100 Districts in Canada, the US, UK, Australia, and Scandinavia use the program, that was developed by Rotarians for Rotarians. During the last 18 months, the program has been updated.  The material has been aligned with RI’s new strategic plan.  A virtual model has also been developed.  It has been received favourably.  Many Clubs around the world have completed virtual visioning sessions.

If you are interested in becoming a Club Vision facilitator, please contact PDG Lars Henriksson,  for more information.  You are also encouraged to visit    This site will give you a good overview of the Club Visioning program.

Rotary's Polio Eradication Strategy 2022-26 - Delivering On A Promise


Rotary and our Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) partners have launched the Polio Eradication Strategy 2022-2026: Delivering on a Promise to overcome the remaining challenges to ending polio, including last year’s increase in polio cases caused by a pause in vaccination campaigns due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Leaders from Pakistan and Afghanistan — the last two countries where wild polio remains endemic — have recommitted to working with the GPEI to improve vaccination campaigns and reach at-risk children. As long as polio exists anywhere, it remains a threat everywhere.

In addition to providing a roadmap to eradication, the new strategy calls for renewed political and financial commitments from governments and donors to achieve a polio-free world. Learn more about the action underway to eradicate polio.

Need Some help With Your Club's Public Image ? Just Ask Us For Help

In the Summer of 2020, we asked Rob MacArthur, our District 7070 Public Image Public Investigator (P I P I for short) to carry out an investigation on all 55 Rotary clubs with respect to their club's Public Image.  Rob looked at their basic web site setup as well as social media channels and the way they were being used. A spreadsheet of the results was made available for our District Leadership Team and Assistant Governors to look at in the Fall of 2020. The Pie Chart included shows a graphical representation of the results.  Where do you "think" your club fits in this chart? What is the Image that the public have, about your club?

If you would like to know where your club is and/or get some help in removing those issues, or, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Rotary District 7070's very own PI PI(Public Image Public Investigator) Rob MacArthur at info@robmac.orgREMEMBER: Another investigation will be take place in the Fall of 2021 after clubs have had their websites refreshed.
