What does buen vivir mean? / How does buen vivir manifest through your work?

Buen vivir exists only with the integration of the following parts: the human, respect and conservation of nature of mother earth, with respect for others, looking to the future, looking at how an economic resource can be capitalized not just in return-generating terms  /// The Buen Vivir Fund can’t be understood without the human aspect.  The fund can’t be understood without respect for and conservation of nature, of mother earth.  The fund can’t be understood without respect for the other.  The fund can’t be understood unless it includes

“El Fondo como fondo – o sea – un fondo no se puede entender sin la parte humana–para el buen vivir.  Ese fondo no se puede conseguir sin el respeto y la conservación de la naturaleza, de la madre tierra.  Ese fondo no se puede conseguir sin el respeto al otro, a la otra. Ese fondo no se puede conseguir si no hay esta parte de mirar hacia adelante, de ver cómo un recurso económico puede capitalizarse en términos no únicamente de rendimiento–de rendimiento económico–sino de rendimiento humano; Es buscar esas fórmulas, buscar esos detalles.”

Economic work should not and cannot be separated from these various aspects if we are to expect it to bring about buen vivir.  In this way, economic work is connected to issues of migration, identity, and cultural dignity, as well as the well-being of mother earth.  If you strengthen the local economy, you strengthen the social fabric, helping people stay rooted in their homes and cultures.
