Rotary Peacebuilding Conference - Vancouver - Feb 9-11, 2018

Dear Rotarian,

As you may know RI President Ian Riseley is holding six peacebuilding conferences around the world. The first of these international conferences is close to and easy for your members to attend. On February 9-11, 2018 in Vancouver, BC the presidential peacebuilding conference will examine sustainable global and local environmental practices, and their contributions to peacebuilding and peacemaking.

Participants will discuss the impact of environmental issues on health, fresh air, clean water, vegetation, and food production – and how improved environmental conditions are a fundamental condition of building peace within communities. The conference will bring together community leaders, youth, and representatives from the public, private, and government sectors. Attendees also can participate in a hands-on service project the morning after the conference.

There will be a focus on how Rotary clubs can involve their local community in sustainable projects and peacebuilding.

The conference website has a list of keynote speakers, link to book a hotel room, draft program and a link to the registration.  Please visit:

The registration is currently $250 Canadian.

Rotarians from the US, Canada and around the world will come together at the Hyatt Regency in Vancouver for this conference. Will your club be represented? 

Thank you for all you do for Rotary and your community,

Chris Offer, PDG
for Rotary Peacebuilding Conference Vancouver
