Introducing common economic customs across the world. The effect is to initiate relevant global customs.
An integral part of reviving economic service in a global, broad-based economy in which every individual participates in responsible economic decision-making and new economic life-style.
Tactics include: inclusive time-designs to create the rhythm, pace and timeline for the use of a person or group's time throughout the day, week, quarter and year; problem-solving units to call together people who tackle problems head on, through setting aside a week-end to gather data, define problem, gestalt and refine data out of which a corporate decision can be made and thus acted upon; reform experiments to create the new corporate customs ensuring humanness; corporate planning to create a custom of corporate sharing and planning of the activities necessary for community life; and global practices to inject within the community those global customs which will become their own particular customs.
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.
