Last week, our club Rotaract Scheveningen organised its second webinar, this time on environmental issues! During the webinar, we discussed the current state of the environment and how we, as a community, can contribute to a more sustainable future.
We would like to thank our guest speakers for their wonderful presentations! Giovanni Cappa from Sea Shepherd shared his experience as a medical officer. We also had the opportunity to learn more about the meaning behind Rotaract for the Oceans initiative! Giovanni is part of Rotaract Club Pavia, District 2050.
Our second speaker, Lloyd Edwards from WWF, has built up and leads a team of more than 100 volunteers. Lloyd shared his knowledge and experience on maintaining a sustainable lifestyle. We learned how to calculate and reduce our environmental footprint among other things!
Finally, Gert-Jan van Dommelen spoke about the idea behind the End Plastic Soup initiative. He explained the importance of Rotary and Rotaract in action to end plastic soup worldwide.
Last but not least, thank you to our amazing moderator Johanna Helsing! Her contribution to having a fruitful discussion was invaluable.
Thank you to everyone who joined us and we look forward to many more interesting webinars to come!
