This represents the entirety of a person's cultural surroundings, including the systems that govern politics, the economy and values.
Got it
Levels of the Ecological Systems Theory: Exosystem
The settings at this level have an effect on a person without allowing the person to actively participate. For a child, a parent's workplace might be an example of this.
