ICCs celebrates its 70th Anniversary

On May 23rd, 2020 we celebrated the 70th anniversary of Rotary Intercountry committees which are one of Rotary’s many paths to fostering goodwill and peace among nations.

In 1950, a handful of German and French Rotarians gathered in Strasbourg. They were marked by a terrible war. Together they made a gamble to emerge from tragedy through intelligence. They created the first Rotary Intercountry committee with a single goal: reconciliation between their two countries.

Since, this program has helped Rotarians to create a climate of friendship with clubs and districts from different cultures.

Through a simple flexible structure, ICCs are spreading Rotary service and are advocating world understanding. ICCs project increase the effectiveness of international in the Rotary area of focus and help increase Rotary membership development by giving value of interest for young people and help setting new Rotary and Rotaract clubs.

To celebrate this anniversary the ICCs Executive council under the leadership of its chair Ovidiu Valeriu Cos, hosted a virtual celebration on Zoom with a message from RI President Mark Maloney and an address by RI President Elect Holger Knaack.

Almost 200 participants from all over the world attented this celebration.

Now that we are virtually meeting and raising walls and closing borders it is even more important than ever to connect different countries around the World in promoting peace and understanding.

President Elect Holger announced the preconvention event in Taipei Friday June 11, 2021 "Intercountry Committees: Opening Opportunities for Peacebuilding"
