Enabling everyone to visualize the full possibility in his particular skill. The effect is to release each person to put his whole being into humanizing his work.
An integral part of releasing human ingenuity to fulfil global needs and demands while allowing the individual to develop his own potential.
Tactics include: art-form displays to graphically depict different skills in a way that presents an attractive, visual image together with a brief, memorable title or slogan; advertising systems to indicate the activity of integrating radio, TV and newsprint media to spell out the immediate and long-range needs for persons trained in each skill; educational component to provide detailed explanations of each skill, possibilities for adapting from a present skill, and advancing in the new skill as a career; employee ambassador to exchange employee representatives of different cultural areas who share ideas of skills usage, thus stimulating pride in participating in the work as well as good international public relations; and research model to investigate worldwide skill opportunities and ways of seeking employment in needed areas. An example is three men who, when asked what they were doing in the mud, replied in turn, 'I'm making brick', 'I'm putting up a wall', and 'I'm building a Cathedral'.
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.
