COMMUNITY CAPITAL / INFRASTRUCTURE FORUM 1: Capitalizing on the Human Element for Community Well-Being
The wealth of a community is much more than just its economic wealth; we need to include the wealth embodied in our human, social, and cultural development, the physical assets of our community, and the ecosystems and natural resources that are our natural capital. Moreover, the latter constitutes the physical and ecological bounds within which all these other forms of capital are created.
Our collective well-being depends on striking the right balance among these different forms of capital. How we ensure a high quality of life and good health for all, while having only a ‘One Planet’ footprint is THE challenge of the 21st century.
