Rotary Engagement and Teaspoons of Change

d'Arcy is committed to see a world without extreme poverty for everyone, everywhere and forever!  d'Arcy has many different roles including as an educator, humanitarian and communications specialist. He is passionate about development and advocacy. His passions have taken him to more than 90 countries around the world in the past 19 years.   Since 2009 d'Arcy has delivered over 1000 presentations to more than 100,000 people in schools, universities, businesses, community  groups, government events, conferences and many other forums. This includes more than 150  Rotary presentations and keynote speeches at Rotary events, RYLA, Interact/Rotaract workshops,  District Conferences and more.

d’Arcy has worked on the ground in polio eradication with UNICEF and in collaboration with Rotary in Pakistan, India, Uganda and South Sudan. He has also joined with Rotarians in Canada, New Zealand, Australia, UK, Brunei, Kyrgyzstan and other countries to promote the work of Rotary and polio eradication. In 2012 his work with Rotarians in Canada resulted in $240m for polio eradication from the Canadian Government which saw him receive his Honorary PHF.  In 2014 d'Arcy founded Teaspoons of Change - small but significant ideas and actions that have a positive impact on people and the planet which activates and aligns business, education and government with the Global Goals, one teaspoon at a time.

On top of this d’Arcy’s has established projects including building two self-sufficient tiny houses called Happy-simply; a points and rewards program called Polio Points; and since June 2018, completing a Master’s in Peace Studies where he now also gives talks & workshops on Teaspoons of Peace! In his spare time d'Arcy can be seen outdoors running, cycling, hiking, camping and enjoying new people and new places... (or trying to return to Adelaide spending time with his partner, Serafina).
