Energizing a fundamental re-direction of common production toward cooperative economic relationships. The effect is the forging of a new economic context which motivates workers to participate in corporate research, planning and financial provision focused on the creation of a global economic system.
An integral part of recasting productive engagement to affect production which is equitable in terms of global needs and creative employment of human energies.
Tactics include: applied research to enable redirection of productive forces by intensifying and clarifying understanding of motivational context; allowing individual participation in future planning and in travel experiences under the assignment rationale, providing opportunity to develop corporateness through common story creation and intentional decor; to redirect production forces by maximizing the sharing of human and physical resources within a global distribution structure; consensus modelling to provide informal links enabling corporate creation of systems through representative bodies, accountability to discerned needs and practical training; universalized credit to power productive resources by rapid financial enablement of workers within a standard global economic system. An example is automotive workers in Detroit doing corporate research on the transportation problems of Hong Kong.
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.
