Label: Purpose & Activities

Based at the United Nations in New York, our members are representatives to the UN of non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The purpose of the URI-UN is to provide an ongoing presence for the United Religions Initiative at the United Nations...

URI-UN hosts events for NGOs, Ambassadors and UN agency staff in relation to UN issues that highlight the principles and spirit of the URI, often demonstrating the Appreciative Inquiry process. URI-UN actively supports the UN International Day of Peace, the Millennium Development Goals, the establishment of a UN Decade for Interfaith Cooperation, and building a Culture of Peace.

Our CC activities include interactive workshops using Appreciative Inquiry; panel discussions offering religious and indigenous perspectives on UN issues; luncheons for diplomats, NGOs and UN staff; and co-sponsorship of events with religious and spiritual NGO groups. In 2009, URI-UN hosted nine events highlighting the International Year of Reconciliation.

Our dream is to be a presence for URI at the UN and to make the URI charter a reality, to come together as friends, to be an international channel for grassroots people on global issues.
