The URI Europe Assembly was held in Ohrid, Macedonia on October 2-6, 2019. URI members from across Europe (including 15 countries and 32 Cooperation Circles) gathered to exchange ideas, enjoy productive conversations, and plan future collaboration and activities – with special excitement for URI Europe’s upcoming 20-year benchmark. Participants were graciously hosted by the local URI Cooperation Circle, Community Development Institute – Tetovo. Among their other activities, the participants also found time to clean garbage from the picturesque shore of Ohrid Lake (pictured above).
This assembly took place 22 years after the first-ever regional URI summit, which was held in Oxford in 1997. Thanks to the hard work of the URI Europe team over the years, URI peacebuilders currently thrive in Europe through the work of 60 Cooperation Circles in 22 countries.
