Welcome

Welcome to Our Home

Welcome to the home of the Rotary E-Club of Western Australia Inc., better known as “E-WA”.  We’re sponsored by the Rotary Club of Southern Districts.

E-WA  is Western Australia’s first online Rotary E-Club. We help a diverse group of time-poor members volunteer for good causes at modest cost and very productively.

We cater to members who are:

  • time-poor
  • wanting value for money
  • located too far from a Rotary Club to make regular meetings
  • required to travel for work, including Fly-In Fly-Out professionals
  • unable to leave young children or family members during typical meeting times

We do business online, with regular social face-to-face meetings at different locations around WA.  Our team plans amazing projects via videoconference on Mondays.  Alternatively, members who cannot join a scheduled get-together participate in discussions in our online group at any time convenient for them.

Our members are located across Western Australias and utilise their online presence to help our local and global communities.

How We Get Together

E-WA has a very effective tri-modal meeting process which includes three different types of get-together:

• We deal with club business during our Monday night gatherings on our Zoom video channel. No travel time, or cost and no dinner fees. It works!
• Our decision process  takes place in an online group, which enables members to collaborate and share information easily .
•  The E-WA team enjoys regular face-to-face social gatherings at different locations around Western Australia.

Our members are located across Western Australia and use their online presence to serve our local and global communities.

Why Rotary is Important to Us

 

The treemission © project started as a collaboration between Rotary clubs, the National Trust of Australia (WA) and Carbon Neutral in 2008. The concept is to encourage people to make a commitment to address climate change and plant trees to offset their contribution to green house gases and global warming. Treemission has goals of informing Rotarians, school children and community members about what is happening to our environment, what can be done to address those impacts and taking action by tree planting to ameliorate those impacts.

Through Treemission, emissions accrued in everyday activities can be turned into trees and shrubs. This will not only help lower carbon levels in our atmosphere but also conserve endangered plants, animals and rehabilitate degraded land.

The treemission initiative has established a tax deductible conservation appeal with the National Trust for donations to offset carbon emissions from meetings and daily activities by Rotarians. These donations will enable an area of land to be planted and rehabilitated.
An exciting part of the project is that where possible locally endemic species will be used, and tree and under-storey species will be chosen for reasons of biodiversity. Even more exciting is that collaboration has extended to include urban and rural communities in tree planting activities.
