THE ROTARY REPRESENTATIVE NETWORK - modelun

THE ROTARY REPRESENTATIVE NETWORK

Rotary currently holds the highest consultative status offered to a nongovernmental organization by the UN’s Economic and Social Council, which oversees many specialized UN agencies. Rotary maintains and furthers its relationship with a number of UN bodies, programs, commissions, and agencies through its representative network . This network consists of RI representatives to the United Nations and other organizations:
United Nations Geneva
United Nations Vienna
UN Economic Commission for Europe (ECE)
UNESCO
OECD
Council of Europe
UNHABITAT
International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD)
African Union
UN Economic Commission for Africa (ECA)
Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC)
Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA)
Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP)
World Bank
Organization of American States (OAS)
The commonwealth
European Union
League of Arab States

With over 10 000 Rotaract clubs all over the world and over 200 000 active members involved in local and global projects Rotary Youth Representatives in all the mentioned organizations are key people in an effective and productive cooperation between our networks.
We are looking forward to meet all interested youth in Model United Nations and plan forward activities and projects with all global networks available out there.
Rotary’s relationship with the United Nations dates back to 1945 when some 49 Rotary members acted as delegates, advisors and consultants at the United Nations Charter Conference. Today, Rotary holds the highest consultative status possible with the United Nations as a non-governmental organization.
Rotary and the United Nations have a long history of working together and sharing similar visions for a more peaceful world.
In 1942, Rotary clubs from 21 nations organized a conference in London to develop a vision for advancing education, science, and culture after World War II. That event was a precursor to UNESCO. In 1945, 49 Rotarians went to San Francisco to help draft the UN Charter. Rotary and the UN have been close partners ever since, a relationship that’s apparent through PolioPlus and work with UN agencies.
“The invitation to Rotary International to participate in the United Nations Conference as consultant to the United States delegation was not merely a gesture of good will and respect toward a great organization. It was a simple recognition of the practical part Rotary’s members have played and will continue to play in the development of understanding among nations. The representatives of Rotary were needed at San Francisco and, as you well know, they made a considerable contribution to the Charter itself, and particularly to the framing of provisions for the Economic and Social Council.

Economic and Social Chairperson ModelUN

Let us introduce you our Chair at ECOSOC:Alexander Sohl

Alexander Sohl is a German born, Engineering graduate student and committed Rotaractor with both his student and Rotaract life based in Karlsruhe, Germany.

The experiences he gathered while traveling and living around the world have infused him with a passion for international relations and politics. Gladly he stumbled upon Model United Nations in Shanghai 2008. Ever since, MUN is an activity that has given him much more than simply the opportunities to learn about international affairs, to travel across four continents, or to get really good at tying his tie on the go as he rushes to committee. More importantly, MUN has given him the chance to meet all of you; to connect with young people from over a hundred countries, and to foster meaningful friendships that last far beyond the bang of the final gavel dies out.

Alex invites all of you to join him solving the most pressing and important economic and social issues and of course live the Rotaract and MUN Spirit in Sofia this July!

Big News coming out of Rotary International Council on Legislation

Rotaractors can now be active members of a Rotary Club.
The Council approved by an overwhelming majority, that the members of the rotaract can simultaneously be a member of a Rotary and a Rotaract Club.
This will pave the way for a better transition within the Rotary. Some Rotaractors are reluctant to leave their rotaract club before they reach the age of 30 years, the maximum age, because they don't want to sever ties with the friends. Similarly, some former Rotaractors are encountering difficulties in obtaining a rotary club in order to invite them as a member. Only 5 % are currently making the transition. The goal is to reach 50 %!!!
The same council rejected the proposal to consider raising the Rotaract age limit to 35 and the proposal  to consider lowering the maximum age for membership in Rotaract to 25.
