Providing comprehensive vocational skills-training experiences. The catalytic effect is to practically train those not now being adequately prepared for employment.
An integral part of providing necessary skills, whether training or personnel, to eliminate local pockets of unemployment while necessary industries lie idle.
Tactics include: training assignments to determine the needed job areas by utilizing the unemployed and the worker with obsolete skills; vocational classes to care for trainees by providing supervised job experience and employment; apprentice programme to place available trainees in co-operating industries; continued training to extend training to all employed workers to diversify their knowledge and skills while on the job; and recruitment techniques to find employees, employers, equipment, facilities and faculty. An example is the provision of previously hard-core unemployed with re-imaged work roles, practical training experiences and guaranteed employment.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a unique, experimental research work of the Union of International Associations. It is currently published as a searchable online platform with profiles of world problems, action strategies, and human values that are interlinked in novel and innovative ways. These connections are based on a range of relationships such as broader and narrower scope, aggravation, relatedness and more. By concentrating on these links and relationships, the Encyclopedia is uniquely positioned to bring focus to the complex and expansive sphere of global issues and their interconnected nature.
The initial content for the Encyclopedia was seeded from UIA’s Yearbook of International Organizations. UIA’s decades of collected data on the enormous variety of association life provided a broad initial perspective on the myriad problems of humanity. Recognizing that international associations are generally confronting world problems and developing action strategies based on particular values, the initial content was based on the descriptions, aims, titles and profiles of international associations.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
