The program features on-site interviews during Rotary’s United Nations Day on November 3, 2012, with Rotary International President Sakuji Tanaka (2012-13) and other humanitarian leaders from around the world who discuss how their service projects save lives and create goodwill. Rotary and the United Nations have a long history of working together and sharing similar visions for a more peaceful world. Each year at Rotary UN Day more than 1,300 Rotarians come together at UN Headquarters in New York. The program is designed to inspire and educate all participants as well as provide insight into the relationship between Rotary and the United Nations. These interviews tell us what the world is doing in its efforts to encourage peace and understanding through humanitarian service.
