Ensuring that each individual has access to a comprehensive compilation of relevant training wisdom to stimulate him to responsible engagement.
An integral part of empowering individual engagement to broaden the context of decision-making from immediate self-interest to the long-term interest of all.
Tactics include: reprogrammed mindset to impact each individual at the levels of family, community, nation and globe, through exploding his limited images with global news and weekly events; envisioned vocation to give each individual the possibility of maintaining his awareness of the significance of his own life's vocation through summer refresher courses, symbolic leaders' speeches and celebration of family life; honoured uniqueness to enable each individual to live related to his neighbours, through extended family visits and holding, for example, community New Year celebrations; and sustained responsibility to stimulate, challenge and honour the decision-making processes of individuals and groups through such activities as children's workshops, and having each geographic unit create a symbol of responsibility.
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.
