Build hope and courage through the Ifixtheplanet video challenge.


As Rotarians, Rotaractors and Interactors, you are no stranger to working to make the world a better place together with likeminded people. 

Now we are facing a brand new set of challenges, helping fix the environment and the future for us all. 

Rotary International has risen to that challenge by declaring a new seventh Area Of Focus – “Protecting the Environment” 

In ESRAG – The Environmental Sustainability Rotary Action Group – we are working together to provide a platform for the Rotary family around the world to get engaged. 

The challenge was to create a video, ideally seventy seconds long (but no more than 100 seconds), where you showed us an environmental project you are working with, have worked with, or are planning to work with.  

Challenge your club members to do the same. Challenge everyone! 

The more people see and get inspired from our films, the more we will all help fix the planet with this video challenge.  

The videos will be presented first during the RICON 4th – 8th of June 2022 in the House of friendship. The final chance is at the RI institute in BASEL: OUR FUTURE IS NOW, 4th – 6th of November 2022. 

The Jury will consist of our 13 regional chapter leaders.
