“Lead The Change- Youth in Rotary” was the title of the Debate Workshop between Rotary and Rotaract that was held on Saturday August 31,2019 at Le Royal Hotel, Beirut.

The debate was attended by 50 Rotarians and 50 Rotaractors. The event was an innovation, a novelty and a revolution for both Rotary and Rotaract, following the updates of the Council on Legislation and the elevation of the status of Rotaract clubs.

We organized the workshop to engage Rotarians and Rotaractors in a vibrant atmosphere to know more about each other in order to pave the way for our future leaders into Rotary.

The workshop was an extraordinary success, and that’s because of many reasons. But I have to admit that one of the important reasons of this success goes back to the fact that the Organizing Committee of this workshop was created from Rotarians and Rotaractors.

We were working hand in hand and side by side with every single detail!
