Displaying how to put new life in community education. The effect is showing people the style that is needed to revitalize community education so as to transfigure social interaction.
An integral part of transforming social interaction to enable the individual to display his particular gifts; and to breath new life into individual and group cultural encounters within the community.
Tactics include: context expansion to develop a context which community members can understand and exhibit; experimental approaches to utilizing insights through education, occupational exchange and cultural exchange; symbology exhibition to provide a public network to display community symbols; in-depth curriculum to be a personal display of the social methods and understandings necessary to be a comprehensive learner; and all-embracing instruction to convey and receive knowledge in a comprehensive context. An example is creating the context for expanding curriculum structures.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a collaboration between UIA and Mankind 2000, started in 1972. It is the result of an ambitious effort to collect and present information on the problems with which humanity is confronted, as well as the challenges such problems pose to concept formation, values and development strategies. Problems included are those identified in international periodicals but especially in the documents of some 60,000 international non-profit organizations, profiled in the Yearbook of International Organizations.
The Encyclopedia includes problems which such groups choose to perceive and act upon, whether or not their existence is denied by others claiming greater expertise. Indeed such claims and counter-claims figure in many of the problem descriptions in order to reflect the often paralyzing dynamics of international debate. In the light of the interdependence demonstrated among world problems in every sector, emphasis is placed on the need for approaches which are sufficiently complex to encompass the factions, conflicts and rival worldviews that undermine collective initiative towards a promising future.
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.
