Rotary District Convenes in Amman for Sustainability Summit

The Jordanian capital, Amman, is set to host the eleventh conference of Rotary District 2452, kicking off today, Thursday, June 27th, 2024. The three-day event, held under the theme "Think Green, Live Green, " will see participation from over 336 delegates gathering at the St. Regis Hotel in Amman.

The conference is placed under the patronage of Her Royal Highness Princess Basma bint Ali of Jordan, who is expected to deliver the opening remarks. A representative of the Rotary International President, Gordon McInally, Daniel Ratsey, will also be present to address the gathering.

The focus on environmental sustainability is a cornerstone of this year's conference. Organizers hope to foster discussions and collaborative efforts among Rotarians towards environmental protection and promoting eco-conscious practices. The conference agenda likely includes talks, workshops, and presentations centered around environmental issues and potential solutions.

Rotary International, a global network of service clubs, is a well-known organization dedicated to humanitarian service and international understanding. District 2452 encompasses Jordan, Palestine, and Lebanon. The Amman conference provides a platform for Rotarians from these regions to exchange ideas, share best practices, and develop new initiatives focused on environmental sustainability.

Beyond the conference itself, organizers have planned post-conference tours for attendees and their families. These tours are designed to showcase the rich archaeological heritage of Jordan, with visits planned to historical sites throughout the Hashemite Kingdom. These excursions are expected to extend from June 30th to July 3rd, offering participants a chance to explore Jordan's cultural and historical treasures while fostering camaraderie among Rotarians.

The Rotary District 2452 conference in Amman promises to be a significant event, bringing together Rotarians to collectively address environmental challenges and chart a path towards a more sustainable future. The conference's focus on environmental responsibility aligns with Rotary International's commitment to service and global citizenship.
