Rotarian Peace Projects Incubator
5 November 2022 in Basel, Switzerland
held in conjunction with the Rotary Institute 2022
Purpose and Objectives
The second edition of the Rotarian Peace Projects Incubator seeks to continue development of peace projects that are tailored to address urgent community needs. The 2020 edition has seen many ideas taking form. It is now the time to advance them to a stage where implementation is possible.
New projects will be evaluated by a team of experts for their readiness and their compatibility with the Rotary Global Grants expectations.
Every day, we hear about conflicts, wars, refugees, atrocities, and victims. These conflicts seem so remote to us, often times feeling unreal and difficult to imagine the hardships people endure. And yet, as humans we cannot close our eyes to the suffering because peace concerns us all.
What can we do as Rotarians? We have a moral responsibility to look closely and reflect on how we can alleviate suffering. If we turn away from those in need, their suffering can easily become our own.
For the first Incubator more than 50 Rotary Peace Fellows, Rotarians, Rotaractors and international experts worked to have at almost 50 Peace Projects, projects that Rotary Clubs world-wide can take on board, finance and help implementing. Have a look at the project list. This second editions aims to push forward these projects and to accept new ones.
Join us in developing projects that make the world a more peaceful place!
