Rotary Day at the United Nations

12 November 2016

United Nations Headquarters

New York City

Rotary Day at the United Nations is our annual event highlighting the critical humanitarian activities that Rotary and the UN lead around the world.

Organized by the Rotary representatives to the UN in New York and attended by more than 1,500 Rotarians, Rotary youth program participants, UN officials, representatives of humanitarian organizations, friends, and guests, this event showcases the many ways that clubs and districts can make a positive impact in their communities while addressing some of the most pressing international challenges.

Responsible Business, Resilient Societies

In keeping with Rotary President John F. Germ's theme, Rotary Serving Humanity, and with the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, this year's Rotary Day at the United Nations focuses on how Rotary and the business world can work together to improve lives.

Responsible Business, Resilient Societies, this year's UN Day theme, centers on economic and community development. We'll address ways that Rotary, in partnership with the business sector, nonprofits, and the international community, is promoting stable and peaceful societies through equitable economic development.

How to register

Registration information will be available in August. To learn more, visit Rotary Day at the UN.
