Fishermen in Indonesia have gained valuable insights through their experiences, recognizing the multifaceted role of the country's mangroves.
Beyond their pivotal role in stabilizing eroding coastlines and mitigating coastal flooding, these mangroves serve as crucial carbon sinks, fostering marine biodiversity and sustaining local fisheries. The repercussions of coastal forest disappearance extend beyond environmental concerns, encompassing the erosion of coastlines and a significant decline in annual income for fishing households.
This situation, where the rate of income decline is 5 to 10 times higher than the rate of mangrove loss, underscores the severity of the challenges faced when these vital coastal ecosystems diminish.

An estimated 500 million people worldwide became infected. Many cities closed theaters and cinemas, and placed restrictions on public gatherings. Rotary clubs adjusted their activities while also helping the sick.

This is how Rotary responded to the influenza pandemic that began in 1918 and came in three waves, lasting more than a year.

Every hero has an origin story. “I was 10 years old when the entire journey started,” explains Binish Desai. It began with a cartoon called Captain Planet, an animated TV series from the 1990s about an environmentalist with superpowers. Desai can still recite the show’s refrain: Captain Planet, he’s our hero / Gonna take pollution down to zero! “That tagline stuck in my mind,” he says. “I wanted to do something to help Captain Planet.”

Women are active participants in Rotary, serving their communities in increasing numbers and serving in leadership positions in Rotary. The 1989 Council on Legislation vote to admit women into Rotary clubs worldwide remains a watershed moment in the history of Rotary.
 “My fellow delegates, I would like to remind you that the world of 1989 is very different to the world of 1905. I sincerely believe that Rotary has to adapt itself to a changing world,” said Frank J. Devlyn, who would go on to become RI president in 2000-01. 
The vote followed the decades-long efforts of men and women from all over the Rotary world to allow the admission of women into Rotary clubs, and several close votes at previous Council meetings.
