Complementary Initiatives and their Historical Associations

-- / --

Descriptions of the four initiatives surrounding the symbol are available from the websites to which their names are linked. The keywords beneath the names may link to indicative documents on the Laetus in Praesens website below the four. The historical precursors (shaded) to this fourfold pattern were the Union of Intelligible Associations -- a strategic initiative arising from the historic partnership between Mankind 2000 and the Union of International Associations dating from 1972 (which notably gave rise to a succession of editions of the Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential and its current online variant).
