The future of Peace Leadership summit 21- 22 April 2021
Hello everyone,
Two years ago, you registered to attend the Rotary Peace Summit that was held at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre the day before the 2019 Victorian Mukti District Rotary Conference.  The Peace conference was a great success.
It is now my pleasure to invite you to the 2021 The Future of Peace Leadership  symposium  being held to celebrate the centenary of Rotary in Australia. The program promises to be even more exciting than the 2019 event (see flyer below)
The Future of Peace Leadership  webinar will bring together leaders in peace and conflict resolution to provide us with perspectives on challenging global and domestic issues. They will discuss how we can all contribute towards building a more peaceful world. 
The symposium will be held online over two half days, the afternoon of Wednesday 21st and the morning of Thursday 22nd April 2021.  It will appeal to Rotarians, peace practitioners, students and others. 
Registrations are now available via the conference website: at only $66.00 per person for the two days.
Speakers will include RI President Holger Knaack, Chair of the Rotary Foundation, PRIP Ravi Ravindran and two Nobel Peace Prize  Laureates  Dr Jose Ramos-Horta AC and Prof Tilman Ruff AO
Well known ABC Journalist Ali Moore has agreed to facilitate a thought provoking  panel discussion titled  “ How can we reverse the Doomsday Clock?”  Gareth Evans AC, Steve Killelea AM and PRIP Ian Riseley OAM will be on the panel.
You will be able to register for two of the following optional sessions:
  1. Indigenous reconciliation  2. Family violence  3. Economics and Peace  4. Humanity & Humanitarian aid    5. Business & human rights law    6. What you can do for peace
Another highlight will be the launch of the University of Melbourne’s  new Centre for Peacebuilding.
For more program details, speaker profiles and registration please go to

I hope you can join us for this important Rotary centenary event and /or encourage others to do so.
Remember, peace building is in Rotary’s DNA.
Kind regards
ESRAG update - get involved
Did you know - Rotary now has an Environmental Sustainability Rotary Action Group (ESRAG). ESRAG is an international organization with 14 directors and almost 1100 members from over 57 different countries. I am very excited about ESRAG’s impact in assisting Rotary clubs, Rotary Districts and Rotarians worldwide in planning, implementing and evaluating service projects, building awareness, and inspiring action to promote environmental sustainability.
We have a very active group in our region of the world called ESRAG ANZPI (Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands). I am inviting you to have a look at our website to see what we are doing:
We need people like you to get involved and TAKE ACTION. We would like to know and share what you as an individual and your Rotary Club are doing to improve the environment. Whether it is helping your club or joining a project as a volunteer, ESRAG ANZPI is here to assist you in solving the Environmental Challenges our world faces in communities around the world. You can see existing project stories on the ESRAG ANZPI website  An example of one of these is shown below for you.
We are actively working on growing our membership in ESRAG and in our Chapter. Our membership costs are quite low, starting at US$30 for a regular membership or US$100 for a contributing membership and I am asking District 9810 Rotarians who care about environmental sustainability and global climate change to consider membership using this link:
Thanks, and all the best,
Fabienne Nicola
Water and Sanitation Month
This month in Rotary is... Water and Sanitation Month. 
See below for our club's contribution to this key area of focus for the RC Camberwell
(from VietNam)
Hello Everyone,
Thought you would like to see a few more photos of the recently finished Kon Trang Kep water well. 
Over the last couple of weeks, Kon Tum was in lock down. Today (pictured below) was their first day of freedom!!! Mr John & Mr Hau went out to the well to take photos for me. They are amazing in their support of the Minorty people & have always been incredibly helpful in support of my projects. Enjoy the photos
Regards Sue Grey (honarary member, Rotary Club of Camberwell)
