Establishing model demonstration areas for training purposes Using demonstration laboratories
Creating demonstration institutions in which a totally new environment of human community is established with a clear and effective mission to society. Such institutions include schools, public agencies, small industry or key departments or locations of a large business. The criteria for selection is visibility, replicability and do-ability. It would involve methods training, team formation, documentation and perhaps limited full-time staffing.
(b) Establishing demonstration areas to serve as models and training facilities.
Development efforts within existing institutions leave out those who most need development efforts, such as the unemployed, disenfranchised, women, elders and many others.
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.
