This morning Chula Vista Sunrise Rotary welcomed our speaker, Amelie Catheline, from the Solana Beach Eco Rotary Club and the District Enviriomental Sustainability Committee.
Since becoming a Rotarian, Amelie has shared her passion about caring for the environmental, especially now that Rotary has adopted supporting the enviroment as an area of focus. Amelie showed examples of Rotary clubs' efforts towards climate change and how it has affected communities around the world with heat index, changes in weather, water, food prices, disease and fire. The Committee challenges each Rotary club in our district to sponsor at least project a year for environmental sustainability. It begins with educating our members and community members! There may be a "Zero Waste Challenge" coming our way!
