We hope to see more UK-based interfaith initiatives choosing to become Cooperation Circles affiliated with URI UK. There is no membership fee and no obligation to attend meetings. Still, you will be connected to an immense network of like-minded people worldwide, with multiple opportunities for partnerships and joint projects. To become a Cooperation Circle, your group must have at least seven members from at least three religious backgrounds (including humanism). It should also agree to abide by the URI Charter.  To find out how, please email [email protected].
