Why is URI Europe a CC?

The beauty of URI lies in its global network, the family of URI Cooperation Circles (abbreviated CCs). CCs are at the heart of URI. They have a simple and elegant design: they bring together (at least) 7 people from 3 religions, spiritual expressions or indigenous traditions who support the URI Charter and work in line with it.

Their name says it all, in a beautiful way: “Cooperation” and “Circle”. In a Cooperation Circle (CC) people collaborate in order to realize the aims of the URI Charter: to promote enduring, daily interfaith cooperation, to end religiously motivated violence and to create cultures of peace, justice and healing for the Earth and all living beings. Their cooperation happens circle-like, with a voice for all its members and careful listening and reflection.

The URI Europe Regional Support Team members from their beginnings in the late 90’s embraced this design. The team has always fulfilled the above mentioned requirements for CCs and applied as a CC in 2000 when the URI Charter was inaugurated. URI Europe was officially acknowledged as a URI CC in June 2000.

URI Europe CC members are committed to serving the URI Europe family of CCs to the best of our abilities, strengthening the European CCs as key groups in the interfaith movement, and to supporting the movement’s success and impact, for the benefit of the network members as well as society at large.
