Pillar 5 GOVERNANCE / POLITICS
Governance is how we decide to organize the communities we form. Governance determines who has power, how decisions are made and how account is rendered.
An organization, association, foundation, or the like, devoted to the promotion of a particular cause or program, typically one of a public, educational or charitable nature.
law & justice
Is the system of rules and sentences that are enforced through social institutions to govern a society and control behavior.
Ethics, or moral philosophy, is the branch of philosophy that involves systematizing, defending, and recommending concepts of right and wrong conduct.
taxation & donations
A tax is a financial charge or other levy imposed upon a taxpayer, and a donation is a gift given by physical or legal persons, typically for charitable purposes and/or to benefit a specific cause.
Pillar 4 ECONOMICS
Economics is about how we use and allocate scarce resources for the production, distribution and consumption of goods and services.
A business, also known as an enterprise or a firm, is an organization involved in the delivery of goods, services, or both to consumers.
How we power our economy and societies has a profound effect on our ecosystem. Business, waste management, conservation, extraction and transport are inextricably linked to energy.
Technology is one of the fruits of our knowledge and education. Our technology is a tool we can use to create, sustain, nurture, or destroy our environment.
From moving our goods to moving ourselves, transport is linked to our production, energy, business and travel and has a profound impact on our environment.
Pillar 3 CULTURE
Culture—philosophy, religion and spirituality, cuisine, art, music, and more—is the way we share and pass on our beliefs and values.
art & humanities
By the Arts and Humanities we mean human culture and history and the ways in which people articulate and express their understanding of themselves and the world.
food & clothes
Amongst our main basic needs, we need to nourish ourselves to survive, and to protect our bodies in the many climates humans live in we must clothe ourselves
migration & urbanization
By 2050 more than 65% of the world’s population is projected to be urban and the movement of people to different areas or countries, in order to find work or better living conditions, will greatly affect our societies and environment.
Travel entails going from one place to another for personal leisure or business purposes.
Pillar 2 SOCIAL
Social relates to the relations, life and well-being of human beings in society
Family, friends, neighborhoods, villages, cities and countries—close together or far apart, humans form communities bound together by a common culture and challenges.
Education is the means by which we develop and share our knowledge, culture, technology, values and beliefs.
How we maintain our health, and what we do when we are not healthy, is linked to our environment, knowledge, culture, education, food and shelter.
As we gather in settlements and cities and engage economic activity we use the resources around us and create waste. What we do with our waste, how we manage and recycle it is closely linked to our environment and health.
Pillar 1 ENVIRONMENT
The natural environment encompasses all living and non-living things occurring naturally on Earth. It involves the interaction of all living species, the climate and natural resources that affect human survival and sustainable development.
(air, water, land)
Land, Water, Air.
(animals and plants)
Wildlife traditionally refers to non-domesticated animal species. They reshape the landscape and delight with their diversity.
Conservation means living without destroying or disrupting our wonderful natural environment, using our resources without using them up, and include our efforts to preserve and protect it.
Agriculture is how we get our food from the land. There are agricultural practices that sustain the land and practices that destroy it.
