About Bucharest Institute

We are delighted to welcome you all to the Rotary Institute Bucharest. As we gather in this historical city, laden with culture, charm, and an enduring spirit, we hope this setting inspires and encourages us all to engage in meaningful discussions and constructive collaborations that embody the ethos of Rotary.

The Rotary Institute is not just a meeting, but a celebration of unity, service, and shared commitment to making a difference in our communities and do good in the world. Today, we stand together to embrace our shared dedication to Rotary’s guiding principle of ‘Service Above Self.’

2023-24 theme, “Create Hope in the World” resonates with the very essence of the Rotary spirit. We are united in our commitment to serve, yet it’s our diverse backgrounds, cultures, and perspectives that enrich this journey.

We would like to express our deepest gratitude to all of you who will travel from near and far to be a part of this Institute. We will leave this place not only with enriched minds and invigorated spirits, but also with a reinforced commitment to the values that we hold dear as Rotarians.

May our discussions be fruitful, our bonds strengthen, and our resolve to make a positive difference in the world be bolstered through our time together.


People of action at the same table!

Rotary Foundation Seminar

The Rotary Foundation is the heart of Rotary, a heart that beats steadily and strongly, fueling the invaluable work we do. 
In this seminar, we will delve into the many facets of The Rotary Foundation – its purpose, impact, and the role that each of us can play in its mission. It is a unique opportunity to share best practices, inspire new ideas, and learn from the collective experiences of Rotarians from around the globe.

Regional Update

This seminar serves as a unique opportunity for us to reflect on our past successes, confront the challenges we’ve encountered, and look ahead to what we can achieve together in the future. It provides a platform for us to exchange insights, share updates, and learn from each other’s experiences in growing Rotary, extending our reach, cultivating Rotary’s public image innovatively, and implementing impactful projects.
