2021 Rotary Service Day
Our District is coming together on 21st September 2021 with its first Rotary Service Day for the Rotary year, in line with the directive of RI President Shekhar Mehta.
The service on this day – which is also the International Day of Peace – our District’s Call to Action is to promote an end to online bullying and harassment within our communities.
In partnership with the UN agency for children, UNICEF, specific online safety messages have been developed to keep our children and young people safe. 
All the Clubs (Rotary, Rotaract, Interact and Earlyact) in District 7030 are encouraged to work together to print, post and share far and wide, these online safety tips for parents, children and young people .   
Respective materials are available for download in English and French from the resources page.
EVERY CLUB AND MEMBER OF THE ROTARY FAMILY is encouraged to share these messages and guidelines with children, young people, teachers, parents and the business community...so feel free to use a variety of inter-personal channels and multi-media platforms such as websites, social media, traditional media like print, radio and TV, as well as posters, leaflets, billboards, SMS, etc. to promote the safety tips on 21st September, and the days leading up to it.
When posting on social media platforms, please remember to include the following hashtags for pick-up by Rotary International and District 7030:
#RotaryDays, #PeopleofAction, #PeaceDay, #RotaryDistrict7030
Members are encouraged to be creative and collaborate with other Clubs wherever possible. Some suggestions include:-
  • Social media – Upload and/or ‘Like’ and ‘Share’ the social media posts (graphics and videos) which will provided to all clubs for use on 21 September. Translate or adapt them as appropriate. Share widely among your friends and networks!
