that our economy can continue to be strong, robust, resilient, and able to withstand volatility and uncertainty for us and
for our upcoming generations, and
that our economic capital remains abundant in order that we can afford to care for the environment and our social cohesion;
that our environment can continue to be clean (air, water, and land), and diverse (habitat that allows many different types
of local plants and animals to thrive and provide us with delicious local food, water and handle our wastes), in order to eliminate clean-up costs
and minimise food transportation costs, and
that our environmental capital remains abundant in order to be the womb for a thriving economy and our society
working in community.
that our social cohesion can continue to be connected, engaging co-operatively with each other, with respect-ful open multi-way
communication, with a sense of "community" and pulling together, able to care for people who struggle with how life has presented itself to them,
able to withstand the stresses caused by a volatile economy and health issues brought on by a damaged environment, able to resist breaking into a
panic grab for declining resources, and
that our social capital remains abundant, bonded and integrated in order to be the womb for a thriving economy and to
understand and respect how important it is to have a clean and diverse environment.
