Linking together a global band of national demonstrations and new village movements through and by the local villagers in conjunction with guardians of the public, private and volunteer sectors. It is finally handed over to catalyzed national structures for guidance. The purpose of this chain is to reach all villages with methods and motivation for their own self-renewal, and their participation in changing the infra-structures around themselves working with other self-renewing villages. This chain would be a demonstration to the world of what such renewal is about. This strategy is implemented in three programmatic activities: social formation complexes, project extension clusters and local delivery system 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.
