Join Rotary leaders, members, and guests in New York City, NY, United States, as we celebrate our longstanding special relationship with the United Nations and recognize People of Action who are devising community-based solutions to the global refugee crisis.
About 500 participants are expected to attend this year’s Rotary Day at the United Nations. Under the theme of Refugees: Challenging Assumptions, Creating Opportunities, UN officials and humanitarian experts will inspire participants through a series of flash talks, engaging breakouts and plenary speeches.
Hear first-hand experiences of resettled refugees, UN officials, humanitarian actors and individuals creating community-based solutions that empower refugees, leverage their talents, and connect them to opportunities. This event offers expansive opportunities for the public to learn about and support projects in refugee settlements and beyond. Six volunteers will be honored as Rotary People of Action: Connectors Beyond Borders.
