At the heart of URI is a global network of locally organized “Cooperation Circles,” or CCs. Each CC is a grassroots, independently organized, self-governing and self-funded group comprised of at least seven members and representing at least 3 different religions, spiritual expressions or indigenous traditions. These Circles work in their own context to build cooperation among people of all faiths and traditions. They organize around contextualized needs and visions in accordance with the Preamble, Purpose and Principles of URI. URI's 900 Cooperation Circles are supported and served by eight URI regions around the globe, of which Multiregion is one. Multiregion includes 57 CCs and is growing. The CCs that identify with the Multirefgion have members in more than one region or have concerns that transcend traditional regional boundaries.
