United Religions Initiative at the United Nations (URI-UN) Cooperation Circle (CC) is based at the United Nations in New York. CC members are representatives to the United Nations of non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The purpose of the URI-UN CC 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. 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.
