Stories on Strengthening Networks
One of the best ways to build social capital is to listen to or read about the stories of how others (individuals, organizations, communities) have strengthened their social capital.
The basic idea of social capital is that your family, friends, associates – even acquaintances – are an important asset. You can tap that asset to survive a crisis, improve your financial footing, or just enjoy life more. This is true for individuals and for groups. Communities that have a rich and diverse stock of social networks and civic associations are less vulnerable, and can more easily tackle problems.
