RIWA Awards Presentation

 
Click here for the Awards Program.
 
You are invited to join the Rotary Club of Sydney Peacebuilding Group at a special meeting on 21 September at 1230 via Zoom in recognition of the United Nations International Day of Peace
 
The guest speaker is Major General (Ret) Mike Smith AO who will give an address on his Reflections on the War on Terror – Lessons for Peacebuilding.
 
Events in Afghanistan have rocked the world (again).  Questions are being asked about Australia’s role in that war and how it will deal with the inevitable calls for help from those fleeing the escalating violence.  A more urgent topic for discussion and action by Rotarians could hardly be found.  Mike’s talk will focus on Australia’s involvement in the war in Afghanistan.
