Creating a significant channel through which the power of every individual's creativity can be released. The effect is self-conscious decision to actualize his world-wide responsibility through his commitment to the community mission.
An integral part of honouring human creativity through internalizing the individual's self images of uniqueness and enabling him to contribute his wisdom to the corporate journey of mankind.
Tactics include: revitalizing education to enable corporate building of community problemats, to enable consensus building in the interaction among parents, teachers and students to use examples to open up the power and vitality of a corporate direction, and encourage classrooms and schools where models are being activated; stabilizing of important occasions through creature and symbolic celebrations; structuring care to provide for full mental and physical needs of every citizen by establishing a comprehensive date bank, basic accountability in family structures, dividing the community into care units, focusing the gifts of all groups, in conducting open forums, in establishing feedback between citizen and decision-makers, by developing the family as a community-oriented entity, and by drawing people together at community festivals; and mission articulation to focus the community resources on a common task through imaginal use of community radio and newspapers, creating a mission community story, developing community timelines, demonstrating mission style in signal projects and broadly representative group workshops to plan the future. An example would be a weekly meeting to consider accountability focused on the community's missional thrust.
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.
