Social Capital

Social capital refers to the institutions, relationships, and norms that shape the quality and quantity of a society’s social interactions. It also encompasses the resources available in and through personal and business networks; these resources include information, ideas, leads, business opportunities, access to financial capital, power and influence, and emotional support. An engaged citizenry shares in the responsibility to advance the common good, is committed to the community, and holds a level of trust in community institutions. Increasing evidence shows that social cohesion is critical for societies to prosper economically and for development to be sustainable.
