Creating and implementing globally applicable models for skills training. The catalytic effect is the expansion of man's image of work to benefit all.
An integral part of providing necessary skills, whether training or personnel, and to eliminate local pockets of unemployment while necessary industries lie idle.
Tactics include: project implementation to integrate the model into the local situation; industry permeation to provide the means of setting up the model in a specific industrial situation; participant experiences to demonstrate the nature of the model to the participants through practical experiences; curriculum development to provide the methodology whereby useful skills may be learned; and re-imaged vocation to direct the participant to appreciate his role of global corporateness and the global contribution he can make. An example is the training of machinists: a training model for manual workers in rural areas could include instruction in safety, machine information and care, as well as the actual job operation. In addition, the task could be related to the whole social process through models for lectures and short courses.
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.
