Providing every individual with a responsible task in actualizing a new universal covenant. The effect is that such direct involvement puts into practice the basic results obtained by research.
An integral part of codifying unifying covenants through creating a fresh awareness of fundamental caring for all.
Tactics include: to provide the community teamwork necessary for the carrying on of work related to the continuing life of that community; to give each person the experience of contributing to the corporate good and being accountable to a group; to affirm each individual's wisdom, experience and uniqueness as a historical being, giving him the go-ahead to contribute significantly in the present; to create neighbourhood units to enable individual caring by emphasizing the importance of accountability for each other; and to implement a system of informing every man of his global heritage.
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.
