Releasing every man's political decision-making potential. Its effect is reflected in every man who views himself as capable of bringing pressure on the decision-making process.
An integral part of re-aligning grassroots pressure by enabling the individual to be a powerful and effective participant in the political process.
Tactics include: new self-understanding to develop man's awareness of his decisional capabilities, through the use of short coursing, intentional teaching, use of possibility stories, conversations and image decor; change consciousness to enable man to see that society changes as a result of decision making, by retelling history, teaching publishing examples of society change, plotting the future in terms of decisions to be made, and by using art forms; global responsibility to help the individual expand his image by teaching universal responsibility, creating grids, re-imaging the politician's role, imaging global consensus and vitalizing the role of children; consensus participation to restore the individual's faith in political structures by explaining consensus, establishing corporateness, defining heroes who sway pressure alignment, and honouring past wisdom and practical experience; and re-imaging power to clarify the role of power in decision-making by explaining the new social myth, showing a local community example, offering a family perspective of power, communicating hero mythology and displaying the iron man. An example of this would be the liberal who says he is capable of judging the complex issues of the Viet Nam war based on everyday information sources, without utilizing inside-administration data.
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.
