UN Representative Rotary and the United Nations• In 1942, Rotary clubs from 21 nations organized a conference in London to develop a vision for advancing education, science, and culture after World War II. That event was a precursor to UNESCO.• In 1945, 49 Rotarians went to San Francisco to help draft the UN Charter. Rotary and the UN have been ever since, a relationship that’s apparent through PolioPlus and work with UN agencies.• Highest consultative status offered to an NGO by the UN’s Economic and Social Council
