Showing how surplus goods can be used to benefit the whole of society. The effect is a new vision of how this can happen globally.
An integral part of reallocating surplus resources by recasting the image of ownership from individual security to global stewardship.
Tactics include: global replication to provide a continuous evaluation of the demonstration and reproduction of this project according to a systematic timeline; task sustenance to hold the vision of the demonstration project over against the comprehensive vision of the sponsor; surpluses research to enable the determination of distribution priorities through the analysis of the current contradictions and specified needs; movement preparation to contextualize, train, and sustain the persons who will be assigned to the demonstration project; and demonstration centrum to dramatize the reallocation dynamic in miniature form by creating a project model and determining the concrete form of the demonstration.

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.
