Rotary’s Past and Future Focus on the Environment and ESRAG (Environmental Sustainability Rotarian Action Group)

Scribe: Ron Schlitt Editor: Fred Wittenberger Introduced by: Mark Lidborg

Mark Lindborg introduced our program speaker Karen Kendricks-Hands.  Karen co-founded the Environment Sustainability Rotarian Action Group (ESRAG) because she could combine her passions for Rotary Service and mitigating the climate crisis.  She believes that the ultimate “Service above Self” is ensuring a stable climate for future generations. Making decisions that do no harm to the natural world, preserving the ability of the environment to renew itself, and bringing new opportunities to support Rotary projects in all six Areas of Focus.  They are: Promoting Peace, Fighting Disease, Providing Clean Water and Sanitation, Saving Mothers and Children, Supporting Education, and Growing Local Economies. In summary, every one of Rotary International’s Six Areas of Focus benefits from efforts that are environmentally sustainable.
