Program for International Exchange of Rotary Clubs.

Preface pieRotary

Since being first established in 1905 in Chicago, Rotary has become a global service organization of 1.2 m professionals covering the free world with about 30,000 clubs. In a closer growing world community, we realize tensions and the apparent danger of a clash of cultures and opinions in many places. We respect and acknowledge that different countries and cultures may have different perceptions of local and international topics. As our members all over the world wish to share common values Rotary is well positioned to contribute to build bridges and to support a mutual understanding of different opinions. It is one of our strong beliefs that intercultural exchange programs help to overcome differences, protect freedom and preserve peace. Rotary Clubs signing this PIEROTARY-partnership charter wish to reduce intercultural conflicts and misunderstandings by recognizing each other’s views on international and local issues: Auditur et altera pars.



Preamble

The first aim is to create a partnership between the Granada Rotray Club and the Rotary Club Konstanz-Rheintor, to improve the understanding of peace that surpasses all political, social economical and religious boundaries.

The pieROTARY gives the partners a deep impression of issues that are in the immediate interest of these cultures and countries.

The Granada Rotary Club and the Rotary Club Konstanz-Rheintor start to create an international rotarian network. Our wish is, that the RC of Fès, Madrid-Serrano and other Clubs of the Nations/District 9010 WILL JOIN THIS NETWORK

How to join; pieRotary it's an event between clubs, if you are interested, please discuss it in your club and contact us with your secretary or president of your club, sending us an e-mail to hello@pierotary.org. We would be glad if your could join.

Objectives

The pieRotary program has two periods: The active period and the passive period. The active period, the partner clubs visit each other alternately once per year in their home towns. During the passive period, each club will elect an ambassador to maintain the exchange of opinions between the two clubs and foment individual visits of rotarian friends.

The visiting period is a "long weekend". The hosting club is responsible for the program. The program should give the visiting club a deeper understanding about the way of life, the culture, the city, and the country of the hosting club.

  • The visit is an extended weekend (two nights/Official Part, please feel free to stay longer). The first meeting was in Granada in Abril 2017. And this year 2018 on the 14th and 15th September. In the next few years this event will take place in the participating club's hometown (2019 in Fès).
