Celebrating gifts of the community. The effect is to call for participation in community celebrations that raise the community's awareness of its offerings.
An integral part of re-energizing public leadership by creating an operational context in which the executive authority recaptures authentic representational power while being held responsible to the individual.
Tactics include: legitimate power to limit decision-making power of leadership by community consensus; lionized heroes to create self-conscious public servant image with priority on holding common memory and directed thrust; celebrated community to publicize leadership roles through uniqueness, history and new vision; appropriated roles to point to the revitalizing dynamic which results from the intentional assignment of primary societal heads; and recontexted honouring to point to society's understanding that leadership is verified by sustaining significant engagement.
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.
