Developing corporate neighbourhood beautification Activating community beautification efforts Creating community beautification improvements Structuring substantial space beautification Implementing space beautification projects Beautifying key community spaces Catalyzing community beautification activities
Beautifying the physical environment of a local community, through cleaning streets and other public places, creating attractive community gathering and socializing places, beautifying the facades of buildings and planting trees and flowers in public areas. The intent of the living environment is to create images of significance and possibility for the community.
The concept of a living environment is best implemented in the context of a comprehensive local development effort and through the efforts of local residents. This requires organizing local residents for planning and implementation.
Wasting time on non-essential development efforts diverts the imagination and effort of residents from the real task of development.
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.
