The Mouse that Roared

GUEST SPEAKER at the 2018 Rotary International pre-Convention Peace Conference, Sylvia Whitlock, made history when she became Rotary’s first female club president in 1987. This is her story, and the story of the tiny Californian club that changed the face of service clubs around the world.

Bohemian Rhapsody – the Legacy of Queen

NEW biographical film Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound, their near implosion as Mercury’s lifestyle spins out of control and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid.

Driving Driver Awareness

DID YOU KNOW that road crashes are the leading cause of death and acquired disability of young Australians (rivalled only by suicide in late adolescence)? Youth aged 17-25 comprise 13 per cent of the Australian population, but 22 per cent of the annual road toll. They are more likely to go to hospital due to a crash than any other age group.

Driving Driver Awareness

Let’s Save the World

SIX MONTHS into our Global Warning campaign, Rotary Down Under continues its commitment to put environmental issues firmly in the spotlight.

After past RI president Ian Riseley encouraged Rotarians around the world to plant a tree, thousands took up the challenge – often planting many more than just one – and Rotarians are continuing to plant trees even after Ian’s term has ended. But Rotarians are also doing an amazing range of other environmental projects: saving wildlife, repairing damaged ecosystems and taking measures to reduce waste.

Building Brighter Futures

A HUG THE SIZE OF A HOUSE. The Rotary Club of Hobart, Tas, HUG House project started as an idea – to build a new house on a large, rural-type lot, with profits from its sale directed towards community projects.

The Kowhai Project

UNLIKE CONVENTIONAL corporate models, where business and moral decision making can be clearly differentiated, in the case of Rotary, Doing Good is our business – the two are intrinsically linked. With Corporate Social Responsibility moving from the realm of voluntary self-regulation at the level of individual organisations, to mandatory schemes at regional, national and even transnational levels, Rotary could not be better placed tolead the CSR charge through both example and collaboration.

Hands on in Nepal

IN ROTARY, we talk about supporting projects we will never see and impacting people we will never meet. In July, Sue Gammon, of the Rotary Club of Bundaberg East, Qld, had the chance to change that, when she joined the first Seven Women Cultural Immersion tour with Stephanie Woollard and her social enterprise, Hands On Development, to Kathmandu, Nepal.
