Welcome to Rotary Club Zurich Plus

Two long time Rotarians initiated the formation of the new Rotary Club Zurich Plus, which was chartered on February 23, 2021. This new Rotary Club expands the range of existing clubs in the city of Zurich.

The Plus in our name stands for multiple membership options offered that will make our club and its activities more interesting and livelier. We offer more flexibility: our regular club meetings are on Tuesday evenings, three times a month, one of which is a virtual meeting by Zoom, and two are “hybrid” meetings, i.e., a physical meeting held at our venue as well by Zoom.

Our venue for the club meetings is the Restaurant Weisser Wind, located at Oberdorfstrasse 20, in the heart of Zurich. The exact dates and details of our meetings are listed in the calendar in our webpage.

The Plus further stands for our own “Four-Values Test” that we have created for our Club in addition to the traditional Four-Way Test of Rotary. It reads as follows:

1.      Real deeds and commitment

2.      Genuine friendships and mutual willingness to help

3.      Be open and transparent

4.      Be passionate and joyful about Rotary

We are delighted that we now can start to be active. We wish to convey the values and objectives of Rotary and we are enthusiastic to start with our “good deeds”. For us this is a matter close to our hearts. All our members have committed themselves to charitable actions and work, in the sense of “Service above Self” of Rotary. We wish to support not only the existing projects of Rotary, like EndPolioNow, mine-Ex or SkillDreams Laos, but also our own projects, by ways of donations or “hands-on”. This way we help to improve the life and opportunities of less privileged persons. We will also support relief measures in disaster areas and help to protect our environment.

At the center of all our activities, we aim to foster and deepen Rotarian friendships while also having fun. This is very important to us.

We write our name Rotary Club Zurich Plus, - Zurich without the umlaut. Although we are a German speaking club, this stands for our internationality and openness. Rotarians from all over the world are very welcome to attend our meetings – be it online or in our club venue – and to participate in our charitable projects. We extend a warm welcome and are looking forward to meeting you! More information about our agenda and projects can be found on our German website.
