Tree Planting Guide
RI President Ian Riseley’s Challenge
Ian Riseley has set the presidential theme for his 2017-2018 year as Rotary: Making a Difference. He said recently that one way Rotarians can make a difference is to take actions to address environmental degradation and climate change. Ian has challenged each Rotary club to plant one tree for each club member in the period from 1 July 2017 to Earth Day on 22 April 2018. Planting trees will remove carbon dioxide from the air and help to slow down global warming.
He hopes that the benefits of Rotary’s tree planting will be greater than just environmental and said: “I believe the greater result will be a Rotary that recognizes our responsibility not only to the people on our planet but to the planet itself”.
