International Council of Unitarians and Universalists

About ICUU

The International Council of Unitarians and Universalists (ICUU) is a network of member groups around the world who mostly are known as Unitarian or Unitarian Universalists. ICUU brings together leaders to learn, share resources, develop leaders and leadership, inspire and support each other in building spiritual community. ICUU programs connect people across the globe, creating coalitions to support growing communities and lend a hand in times of need. We nurture fledgling Unitarian/Universalist groups, encouraging the development of liberal religion.

Delegates of the member groups meet online annually and in person every two years to conduct the Council’s formal business, discuss programming ideas, to learn and share together, and to further develop international community through engagement and building relationships. 

ICUU is funded by contributions from member groups following a formula reflecting the economic differences between regions of the world, as well as by generous donations from individuals and organisations.
A volunteer elected Executive Committee, supervises and supports a small staff and a global team of volunteers that implement the programs and work of the ICUU.

The mission of the ICUU is to empower existing and emerging member groups to sustain and grow our global faith community.
