Social 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:

Social Capital concerns the institutions that help us maintain and develop human capital in partnership with others; e.g. families, communities, businesses, trade unions, schools, and voluntary organisations.

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

  • There are trusted and accessible systems of governance and justice
  • Communities and society at large share key positive values and a sense of purpose
  • The structures and institutions of society promote stewardship of natural resources and development of people
  • Homes, communities and society at large provide safe, supportive living and working environments
