Rotary International President-elect Gordon McInally announces the theme for the 2023-2024 Rotary year – “Create Hope in the World”. The theme calls on Rotarians to inspire or restore hope through the projects they champion. PE McInally also recognized the importance of emphasizing peace, which provides the true foundation for hope.

Rotary International President-elect R. Gordon R. McInally called for members to capture the world’s attention and lead the way toward possibilities far beyond our current expectations.
McInally, a member of the Rotary Club of South Queensferry, West Lothian, Scotland, revealed the 2023-24 presidential theme, Create Hope in the World, during the Rotary International Assembly in Orlando, Florida, USA, on 9 January. He urged members to promote peace in troubled nations, help those affected by conflict, and maintain the momentum of initiatives begun by past leaders.

Let’s Create Hope in the World

“By continuing what we do best, by remaining open and willing to change, and by keeping our focus on building peace in the world and within ourselves, Rotary helps create a more peaceful world — a more hopeful world.”

And I couldn’t agree more. How will you lead the way toward new possibilities? Let’s bring lasting change to the world, one restored or newly created hope at a time.
