Using citizen resources in social participation. The effect is to organize signal projects and events which would reveal to man his participation potential.
An integral part of repatterning distribution of benefits to allow individual participation in local economic planning, and in establishing working standards and in planning the employment of workers' kills.
Tactics include: civic projects to actualize the common man's participation in the distribution polity by involving him in activating and uplifting existing social organizations; signal engagement to symbolize common man's actual involvement in the community by spotlighting families who will be the style of responsible action within distribution arenas; resource expenditure to make use of available human resources by channelling these resources into arenas lacking in effective participation; benefit sharing to use organizations as signs of equalizing distribution of resources to show that the idea of benefit sharing is both possible and necessary; and resource guilds to formulate catalytic responsibility distribution groups by educating the common man in the idea of responsible distribution. An example is the reformation of a collapsed community.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a collaboration between UIA and Mankind 2000, started in 1972. It is the result of an ambitious effort to collect and present information on the problems with which humanity is confronted, as well as the challenges such problems pose to concept formation, values and development strategies. Problems included are those identified in international periodicals but especially in the documents of some 60,000 international non-profit organizations, profiled in the Yearbook of International Organizations.
The Encyclopedia includes problems which such groups choose to perceive and act upon, whether or not their existence is denied by others claiming greater expertise. Indeed such claims and counter-claims figure in many of the problem descriptions in order to reflect the often paralyzing dynamics of international debate. In the light of the interdependence demonstrated among world problems in every sector, emphasis is placed on the need for approaches which are sufficiently complex to encompass the factions, conflicts and rival worldviews that undermine collective initiative towards a promising future.
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.
