Economy & Jobs

CAUSES:

Economy & Jobs

A sustainable and prosperous economy as one that is interconnected with the environment and has the power to retain, grow and attract businesses and a workforce that embrace sustainable practices and provide community leadership in addressing key challenges. Sustainability is a fundamental component of building a strong community and prosperous local economy. Prosperity is dependent on the wealth of a society sustaining, or not declining, over time. This wealth includes human capital, knowledge capital, and natural capital. The local economy should provide opportunities for all individuals to have the ability to develop their talents and choose to productively contribute to our society.
