Promoting programmes to develop interchangeable skills, to collect information on jobs availability world-wide, and to survey the market for needed skills. The effect is to enable the individual to experience the global mindset through travel to various countries where his skills are needed.
An integral part of releasing human ingenuity to fulfil global needs and demands while allowing the individual to develop his own potential.
Tactics include: informative data to store data which shows where employment surpluses and deficiencies exist; industrial ideas to exchange ideas which creates an understanding of skills needed; labour markets to create equal distribution of skilled labour; global standards to formulate international standards that indicate where revisions are needed; and accountability structures to hold both labour and management responsible for operating out of global availability of employment. An example is research in acupuncture being done in the USA in conjunction with Chinese medical teams.
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.
