Teaching a curriculum designed to help the birth of a peaceful, happy and fulfilled human civilization through focusing on four areas of human and planetary life: Our Planetary Home and Place in the Universe; Our Human Family; Our Place in Time; and The Miracle of Individual Human Life.
The universal core curriculum is being used by the Robert Muller School in Arlington, texas and a number of other schools in countries as diverse as Mexico and Russia. The four core curriculum areas are linked also to UN agencies, providing information as to which agency will be concerned with each aspect of human or planetary life.
Some cosmic force or law or God or Creator in the Universe has put in the human species certain objectives, functions, expectations and destinations. Humanity has become the manager of the planet, a cosmic agent, a very advanced phenomenon in the universe. The next great evolutionary task is to ascertain what this cosmic or divine pattern is and to prepare for it the right global institutions, people, values, guidelines, laws, philosophy, politics and ethics.
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.
