Impacting the masses with the necessity of common sacred objects. The effect is to make the public dynamically perceptive to the power of icons.
An integral part of re-empowering sacred objects to provide appropriate corporate symbols of contingency and relatedness.
Tactics include: community celebration to gather people together to recognize their love of life through representational icons; conversational format to spread the idea of genuine images of human commonness through person-to-person dialogue; personal sign to identify people as symbol leaders through the development of a universal life style; media permeation to emphasize the articulation of common threads of human experience through existing media structures; and dissemination to organize the direct impacting of the masses through the medium of personal communications. An example is designing a humorous radio tale which actually deepens understanding of the peace symbol.
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.
