Rotary Clubs Add Rotary Eco Clubs

From Rotary.org News

Eco Rotary Group Improve Community Park
Eco clubs are a new phenomenon in Rotary. Though “eco” is not an official designation, Rotary allows clubs that plan to have an environmental focus to include the word in their name. In 2010, Deepa Willingham, then governor of District 5240, decided to start such a club. She wanted her district to be the first on the West Coast to set up a nontraditional club that was more about action than meetings. “I was looking for a way to make Rotary more attractive to young people – Gen X and Gen Y – who care about the environment and who want to be involved in hands-on projects,” she says.
