The Parliament of the World‘s Religions


The Parliament of the World's Religions was created to cultivate harmony among the world's religious and spiritual communities and foster their engagement with the world and its guiding institutions in order to achieve a just, peaceful and sustainable world.

Though the partnership between the Parliament and URI was only formalized in 2015, URI Cooperation Circles and representatives have been participants of Parliament gatherings since they first began. URI partners with the Parliament to provide engaging speakers, presentations, booths, and hospitality spaces during annual Parliament events around the world. As an example, see URI's presence at the 2018 Parliament.
