Human Capital

There are five types of sustainable capital from where we derive the goods and services we need to improve the quality of our lives. The Five Capitals are explained on the 'Forum for the Future' webpage Five Capitals on Forum for the Future

The following information is from this source:

Human Capital consists of people's health, knowledge, skills and motivation. All these things are needed for productive work.

If capital is invested in sustainable development then this would be reflected in human capital in the following way;

  • At all ages, individuals enjoy a high standard of health
  • Individuals are adept at relationships and social participation, and throughout life set and achieve high personal standards of their development and learning
  • There is access to varied and satisfying opportunities for work, personal creativity, and recreation

This wiki is an example of human capital.
