Organic Social Capital

Organic Social Capital (OSC) introduces a speculative concept of a society in which our social status depends on our care and commitment to nature. Similar to traditional metrics such as GDP, OSC measures and compares what people do, but now it emphasises care, nurture and community health over economics.

The goal is to examine what would happen if we gave more to nature than we took from it. Where capitalism focuses on money, OSC shifts the focus to the often invisible labour of care. It emphasises the important role that care, and caregiving play in maintaining a healthy environment (umwelt) for nature and society.

This way, D’Anjou hopes to show how strongly our ability to invest in care and nurture is linked to our societal health and our understanding of personal and professional value.
