The capability approach, and its vision of human flourishing in terms of freedom and agency and not utility or income,21 structures public policy around key principles:22 1) Equity: every person should be given the opportunities to enjoy valuable freedoms such as the freedom to be healthy, to be educated, to participate in the life of the community, to engage in meaningful work and to live in a peaceful environment; 2) Participation: people are subjects of their own development, not objects of policies; 3) Sustainability: improving peoples wellbeing cannot be at the detriment of future generations. Living our lives to the full, i.e. a flourishing human life, is not about having and consuming more but about engaging in relationships with others, doing meaningful and fulfilling work, being healthy, pursuing knowledge, enjoying nature, participating in the life of the community, having a sense of direction in ones life and autonomy in decision-making.

The capability approach contains three main concepts: functionings, capabilities and agency. Functionings are the valuable activities and states that become apersons wellbeing ? such as a healthy body, being safe, being educated, having a good job, being able to move and visit people.
