The Green Rotaract Concept is a Rotaract District 9212 initiative that focuses on environmental management and conservation projects. We seek to accomplish our objectives through tree planting, community cleanups, waste management site visits and community awareness campaigns.
Green Rotaract Concept was established in 2017 and continues to involve and encourage over 200 Rotary and Rotaract Clubs in taking up environment projects and involving them in district wide projects. This has seen many clubs take up the challenge to take care of our environment and go green thus our mantra “DO NOT BE MEAN GO GREEN”
