Adapting community structures Improving fundamental community systems Reforming basic community structures
Strategically permeating and using existing community structures to allow these to become humanized.
An integral part of creating sociological man through societal re-education and re-motivation.
Tactics include: grassroots polity to enable participation of every community member in community decision through election strategies and other decision-making methods; infiltrated structures to allow intentional and strategic participation in community structures through job procurement and voluntary committee work; life-related education to provide a womb-to-tomb curriculum which is functional to the tasks of the community through wide use of media and mass education methods; leadership collegiality to develop an interchange system between community leadership directed toward a common community mission which will include businessmen, government and voluntary leaders; comprehensive coordination is intended to create a system for inter-community and intracommunity structures relating to each other in order to share research, wisdom, and to avoid duplication of services and allow for complementary efforts. An example is to strategize in local politics and enable the election of a specific candidate who operates responsibly from a global context.
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.
