        • Ecological Habitus
        • A set of durable but mutable dispositions towards the relationship between human and nature, and between humans within nature; that results in corresponding behavior.
        • Spiritual Capital
        • Spiritual capital can be defined as the level moral consciousness in agents, as seen through their ability to transcend material and hierarchical worldviews of modern capitalism, to move towards postmaterialism and symbiosis. That is, the willingness of agents to recognize the importance of and to engage in, and invest efforts (in spite of personal inconvenience and sacrifice) to behave in ways that are responsible to the environment, ecology and fellow men.
