Promoting means of developing global responsibility
Expanding consciousness of global responsibility Cultivating universal responsibility Creating global responsibility
Promoting activities to invent, develop and disseminate the embodying of a style of global responsibility. The effect of bringing interpretive schemes to bear upon reflective conduct is to form a cultural perspective which elicits and sustains the responsibility of all men for each other.
An integral part of interpreting unlimited responsibility to provide common symbols and perspectives for individuals to act out their lives in a comprehensive context of responsible global stewardship.
Tactics include: projecting an image to express responsibility for all men; intercultural events that bring various cultures together to express the unity of all people; content modes to develop means to present the content of global responsibility to a community; practical engagement to develop structures, rituals, and means for special enactment; and building a curriculum for this course.
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.
