• All about the $ to do things for ʻāina, etc.

  • So caught up in western lifestyle, focus on money and don't reflect on values.

  • Following systems and not heart

  • Want balance, don't have it

  • All about choices

  • Listen to all, create awareness

  • Community - does work just not aware what everyone does

  • Financial disparity - financial resources vs. without

  • Unconsciously perpetuating social classes

  • Less beans in natural because it's already so rich

  • Vibrant community - invest in all others, financial less important

  • Hardest to answer sector question

  • If we’re always doing, we aren't connecting

  • Reluctance to think about social and human from natural and financial sectors

  • How get along and communicate creates change

  • Social - more to do - activities for kids

  • We don't normally do this with intention

  • Organization chasing the $

  • Current investing is restricted by other obligations and values

  • Basic human needs are replaced by numbers and paperwork

  • Working scheduler/travel time limit ability to invest in natural and human

  • Lacking financial resources to own/control natural areas and resources

  • Funding and development of individual, finding $ for efforts, we try to do it but it is not always executed that way

  • Unless we have financial security, hard for people to worry about the environment

  • Don't teach enough financial skills

  • Less beans in natural because it's already so rich

  • After hearing about ALICE, we need to invest here in financial

  • For the most part, yes, we work in social sector, so we deal with community

  • Different seasons of life will allow me to invest differently (middle of career vs retirement)

  • Where it shifted is natural and human capital. Are we hoping natural gets taken care of by human?

  • Fundamental structures block connection across sectors.

  • Think about intersectionality

  • We invest in human and social but we impact natural, education is indirect impact.

  • Local business owners - focus is money

  • Ag programs push on natural capital

  • Connect human capital - teaching the skills human capital for natural resources

  • Rigidity of job roles keeps me from investing my personal values into my sector

  • The values exist but there aren’t resources to invest in natural resources

  • Personally I want more natural investment but there is not financial capacity to do so

  • Investing in natural takes care of our social but we don't yet make that shift

  • Non-profit sector values "want" to be the same but are constrained by funding

  • Social in line

  • Orgs are interested in money but Hawai'i has bigger natural value and social capital which allows for more success than other people other places

  • Social equity brings the financial balance

  • What drives decision making? To function need to look at return/pay etc., but how you made decisions and build social capital the key.

  • Loko iʻa work shows/stresses natural value. Western ways are expensive so financial values important too.

  • Little change between exercises except natural receive less beans in reality.

  • Why so little investment in natural capital?

  • Vibrant needs a balanced approach.

  • From a health care perspective, more needs to be invested in natural.

  • When I work with the county, there’s a disconnect – they don’t understand the need to balance these capitals.

  • For us to be resilient – we need to increase more in building social capital.
