Create Hope in the World

This is the new theme for Rotary year 2023-24: "Create Hope in the World." 
 
Rotary International President Gordon R. McInally announced this theme at the International Assembly in Orlando, explaining that the goal is to "restore hope to help the world heal from destructive conflicts and to help achieve lasting change."
 
He calls for Rotary to create hope by working for peace and mental wellbeing, urging members to engage in tough conversations and earn the trust that's necessary to realize these values.
