Providing an individual with the context and structures through which he can engage himself in his covenanted primal unit. The effect would be the renewal of existing structures.
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: expanded media to better enable effective individual engagement in the social processes through illuminating man's understanding by world news, creating advertising models, and intentionalizing radio and television programming; sharing resources such as funds, human energy, skills, time, and capital goods; recontextualized vocations to provide a context in which an individual can function as a participating citizen in a global community through a new sense of what it means to pour his life into a vocation; structured responsibility to provide the structural context for responsible engagement through ensuring that the structures themselves are held accountable and establishing guilds within structures to maintain accountability and a common mind; and nurtured family to create a missional family unit able to deal effectively with its own struggles through use of community resources and knowledge. An example of this would be to develop a model for a geo-social analysis for the community that would provide data for what the key areas are.
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.
