Key Discussion Concepts
Wellbeing has a lengthy history but is often ill-defined; and is used with
reference to people, places and the planet – and to various dimensions of
sustainability and resilience (e.g. economic, social, environmental, cultural).
Salutogenesis has an explicitly positive focus on what supports thriving and
flourishing (rather than just ‘not being ill’).
Resilience is a widely used term that interfaces with both ‘salutogenesis’ and
sustainability’ and is used in a multitude of ways with reference to
individuals, communities, places, environments and infrastructures.
Sustainability looks beyond ‘staying within
boundaries’ and reducing negatives to focus on net-positive impacts.
