Melbourne Peace Through Harmony Summit 15 February 2018

Dear 2018-2019 District Governor,
It was great to catch up with some of you at the recent Australia & New Zealand Rotary Conference in Hobart.
I now seek your assistance to promote the Rotary Peace Summit that will be held on Friday, February 15, 2019 at the Melbourne Exhibition and Conference Centre. The Summit will be a curtain-raiser to the first ever Multi-District Rotary Conference in Victoria, with representatives from more than 200 Rotary clubs. It will be modelled on the six Peacebuilding Conferences convened by Past RI President Ian Riseley OAM in cities around the globe during the 2017-2018 Rotary year. Ian is one of several outstanding speakers who have agreed to speak at the Melbourne Conference. (See attached brochure)
The theme of our summit is Peace Through Service – Rotary’s Road to Harmony. Our objective will be to demonstrate how Rotary’s Six Areas of Focus converge to positively impact on peace and conflict resolution.
Apart from Rotarians from Australia and New Zealand, we expect to have a strong contingent of Rotary Peace Fellows, peace academics, police officers and community representatives who have a passion for this subject.  
I would be grateful if you could use the attached brochure to promote the conference in your District Newsletter and by forwarding it to clubs in your district for use in their printed or electronic communications.
More information about the summit is available on these links:  and . People can register for the day long summit alone, or as part of a package with the Victorian Multi District Conference.
A central tenet of Rotary International is the advancement of international understanding harmony, goodwill and peace. Through a stimulating, informative and interactive program we aim to give Rotarians meaningful insights into what they and their clubs can do to achieve this goal.
Thank you for your part in making  Rotarians in your district aware of this worthwhile event.
Yours in Rotary Service
