Protecting the Environment

A Rotary cause and one of seven Areas of Focus

We are very excited about all the opportunities to engage clubs in the district to learn more about the environment.

About the Environmental Team

Purpose

The purpose of Rotary’s 6360 District Environmental Team is to support its member clubs in their efforts to bring about positive change and increase their impact on their community through environmental projects. District 6360 includes approximately 53 clubs in 15 Southwest Michigan counties. These clubs and communities they serve are unique, and the Environmental Team will work to inform, inspire, and support each club as it identifies its environmental efforts.

A thing of beauty is a joy forever:
It’s loveliness increases:
It will never pass into nothingness
– John Keats

District 6360 Environmental Team Plan

With a goal of having at least one representative from each of the 6360 clubs, Environmental Team members will help recruit team members from other clubs.

  • Reach out to clubs at least quarterly with Rotary and general environmental information.
  • Gather information on what clubs are currently doing to share with other clubs.

Future goals: Create an Environmental Advisory Board consisting of 6 – 10 members as a subgroup of the Environmental Team to lead efforts.The Advisory Board will elect a President, Secretary, Data Manager to document progress. The Advisory Board decides when, where, and how often to meet.

Environmental Team | Club and District committee chairs

All the Environmental committee chairs are automatically added to the Environmental Team committee as members when they are so designated to that position within their club. Then, the district Environmental Team chair can easily communicate with all the club chairs to assist them with their club duties of conducting activities associated with the effective operation of the club.
