Pathways to Wellness

Community action

Addressing the wellness gap and building healthy communities require broad, inclusive action.

Individuals acting alone or in small groups can’t take this on; nor can government alone shoulder the responsibility.

We need to “pool” our knowledge, skills and resources to tackle issues that are bigger, more complex, or more difficult to change.  This is where businesses, faith communities, service clubs and governments can join forces with individuals and community groups to take on bigger challenges.

Here too relationships are important – between men and women; young and old; people of different ethnic backgrounds; governments and their citizens; employers and workers; teachers, students, parents and school councils.  We need to work with conviction and good will to create strong, respectful partnerships where everyone has a seat at the table.

The kinds of actions that we can take together are limited only by our ability to imagine a different future.
