This Cooperation Circle (CC) gathers to create awareness about peace, the environment and poverty issues, as well as to promote the equality of all. Most recently, they organized a pre-Parliament event in the greater Vancouver areas in the fall of 2009 which was very well attended by dozens of local interfaith organizations. They coordinated a community-wide Olympic Peace Prayer in February of 2010. They conducted fundraising and a community prayer for the people of Haiti. They also presented on the importance of environmental stewardship at the University of Victoria in February 2010. Their group was awarded an Ambassador of Peace designation from the Federation for World Peace at a conference where they presented on the Hindu perspective on peacebuilding. They want to continue their work as well as to collaborate with other CCs of URI.
