What is social capital?
Social capital is one of the most important things we can build in our communities. It’s the glue that holds our communities together and makes them great places to live. The more we connect, the stronger our relationships become, and the more we can do together.
But how do communities actually build social capital? And what are the best ways to strengthen social capital – so that when disaster inevitably strikes, the community is better able to bounce back and thrive?
How will our Community Connections Plan help your community?
A connected community is a resilient community. We understand that increasing a community’s connectedness builds the community’s resilience across the entire disaster lifecycle, including preparedness, response, and recovery.
At corporate2community (C2C) we have been connecting individuals and groups within communities for decades. With our Community Connections Plan, we work with community leaders and organisations to identify the most pressing social issues, then we help them find new ways to build meaningful connections and strengthen existing social capital.
We do disasters differently
We know that people are the foundation of resilience. The more we build capabilities in people, the more resilient our communities will become.
Our expertise means that we can help communities, businesses and governments to think about and do disasters differently.
