Our purpose is to learn to respect to support each other religious groups organizations for making peaceful and environmentally friendly group.

We gather to create awareness about peace, environment and poverty problems and issues and to promote equality of all. Most recently, we organized a Pre- Parliament event in the greater Vancouver areas in the fall of 2009 which was very well attended by dozens of local interfaith organizations. We coordinated a community wide Olympic peace prayer in February of 2010. We did fundraising and community prayer for the people of Haiti. We presented on the importance of environmental stewardship at the University of Victoria in February 2010. Our group was awarded an Ambassador of Peace designation from the Federation for World Peace at a conference where we presented on the Hindu perspective on peacebuilding. We want to continue and work with other Circles of URI. We also want to work with URI and local interfaith associations to organize North America Summit 2011 in Vancouver.
