An integral part of enabling community engagement though societal education, to allow the creative participation of each individual in world wide social structures.
Tactics include: audio systems to facilitate the efficient flow of community information; computer systems to monitor the efficient accumulation and dissemination of community wisdom and data; visual systems to impact the community visually with a new self-image; printed materials to build individual motivation to participate; and language systems to provide tools for language education programs. An example is video recording a workshop in which full participation of the group is broadcast that others may be seen as being trained in media techniques.
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.
