Social Workers’ Contribution to Sustainability

In what ways can a social worker contribute to sustainability in contemporary society?

Critically analyze the role of social work in achieving environmental justice: drawing on the contrast between the neoliberal v eco-social paradigms, outlining your understanding of the role of nature to health and wellbeing, particularly for marginalized communities and individuals, and outlining how social work needs to work towards the common good. How would you contribute as a social worker to environmental justice? Give one or more examples of action you would take at a micro level to support an individual or a family you have worked with to enhance their well-being along their life course.
