The goal of this Cooperation Circle (CC) is to make Cebu City the heart of interfaith movement in the Philippines by 2020. Their collaboration with the Cebu City Mayor’s Office resulted with the city passing a resolution in July 2008 declaring September month as an Interfaith, Peace and Good Citizenship Month in Cebu. As a recognized interfaith sector, they now sit on the Board of Cebu City Solid Waste Management, River Management and Coastal Management Boards. Every year since 2009, their International Day of Peace celebrations attract huge participation, especially the youth from various schools and other organizations in the city. They are planning to put up a “Peace Park” with a labyrinth and a “Peace Pole” at the back of Fort San Pedro with the cooperation of the Cebu City Government.
