Enabling an individual to assume global responsibility. The effect is to have a local community become a responsible sign to society.
An integral part of balancing utilization of production through control and regulation of allocation and development and information on available resources and distribution, so there is local accountability for worldwide needs.
Tactics include: community cultivation to enable execution of local power and a re-imaging of the cruciality of grassroots man to get his voice disseminated into history; grassroots form to develop local structures which would determine plans of action to meet needs of the community; economic responsibility to provide manpower to redesign time allotment in order to implement futuric models through a redefined image of needs; community uniqueness to develop a communal and responsible life-style of the local man which holds him accountable to the globe through care structures, directed employment, common investments and cooperatives; and global interdependence to create a network of local communities bound together in an equitable globally concerned thrust through concretized care and an exploded awareness of global symbology. An example is local people adopting a communal life-style with accent on community action.
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.
