Circles have always been an essential part of URI. In a circle, there is no head of the table; all voices are heard and valued. This is why URI’s grassroots, interfaith groups call themselves “Cooperation Circles.”
People of Islamic, Buddhist, and Christian faiths gathered together for this celebration. Their goal was to use the occasion to motivate people to stop deforestation and to develop concern for natural resources. They released fish into the natural environment and planted trees as an interfaith group.
