1st European International Webinar

1st European International Webinar was conducted by IWD 204 Italy was a great success. This in fact would be marked as a historic milestone, one which indeed worked as a wake up call for Inner Wheel movement as a whole in upcoming days. The issues which were discussed were truly focused on how to evolve Inner Wheel movement keeping the context way the world changing with 4th Industrial Revolution. The founders of Inner Wheel set some values which are time tested but would always go through challenging time over the future to align it according to the changes of the World as World embark upon an uncharted water. Only one inevitable constant in life is “CHANGE”.

We warmly appreciate that the matter of changing orders of the day to cater the demand of the present leading to future were duly addressed by the European Inner Wheel Webenier hosted by District 204 Italy. Europe was the seat of Renaissance, and that spirit spread across the globe eventually to bring about changes for the betterment. We think this Webenier is the first stepping stone of Renaissance in Inner Wheel movement which would make this Inner Wheel more meaningful, pragmatic and make Inner Wheel to evolve. We IWD 328 from Bangladesh the oldest District of Bangladesh felt honoured and privileged to be invited and participated in this Webenier under the auspicious guidance of our Chairman

Monowara Rahman. Luminaries from our District PDC Nayar Islam, PDC Mariam Begum and PDC Naima Shakhawat also actively participated in this event.
PDC Nayar Islam put forward a vital observation along with her question on this august platform which was appreciated and discussed during question answer session. Her question was:
In Rotary International they have provision of E-Club where members do their weekly meetings and most of the official activities over the internet. This option started long before Covid situation. Now we Inner Wheel Clubs are doing most of our activities virtually over the net. Based on the mentioned context, my question is, would it be possible to introduce E-Club concepts to Inner Wheel which would enable members to meet virtually and execute fellowship on a regular basis. This would in my opinion attract more members since the Covid related health issues would be addressed and this could also continue after the pandemic as an option for people to collaborate with much convenience as they would not require to commute physically in the city where traffic is bad.
It’s worth to mention that members during this Covid Pandemic are getting comfortable connecting with each other virtually from their own comfort zone and very likely this comfort factor will play a big role for the members to do regular meetings and fellowship virtually even after pandemic season.”
