Label: Purpose & Activities

Our purpose is to develop relationships with and appreciation for different cultures and religions. To promote joint action and build a network for peace. To launch URI in Mostar, Bosnia.

We were formed at the European URI conference in Dobogoko near Budapest, Hungary in March 2000. Our aim is to organise a conference in Bosnia and Herzegovina, ""Millenium Rainbow of Mostar"" (English) / ""Mostarska Duga Novog Milenija"" (Bosnian). This event will bring young people together in Mostar, half of them from Bosnia and Herzegovina (of Bosniak, Croatian and Serbian background), the other half from various European countries. The conference programme will be comprised of different elements, e.g. workshops on communication skills; lectures and discussion-groups; a pilgrimage to important places of different traditions in the Mostar-region (Catholic, Muslim, Serbian- Orthodox, Jewish); an art-exhibition, fashion-show and a concert; prayers for peace of all religions involved; trip to seaside; workshop on environmental challenges; ceremony on Mostar-bridge with an inter-religious choir; introduction to URI; and to develop an action-plan for further activities.

We dream of preventing conflicts by developing mutual understanding, trust and healing.
