Allowing families to re-envision their role as an integral societal unit to provide an understanding of what it means to be a missional family.
An integral part of creating sociological man through societal re-education and re-motivation.
Tactics include: exploding parochialism to open the family to the real world they live in; family polity to allow the family to create rational, intentional decisions; prioritizing expenditure to allow the ordering of money, time and energy from a comprehensive, missional context; societal engagement to direct the family toward responsible involvement in the community; and authenticated roles to allow re-invention and appropriation of sexual and generational roles. An example is a family which budgets its time to enable missional use of week-ends, and thus becomes a sign to other neighbourhood households.
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.
