The social worker as a green profession
In the current dispensation, there is a lot of incredible work that is being undertaken globally by the social workers to address the issues that are at the nexus of environmental and community sustainability. It is because environmental problems are also proving to have a social angle and therefore social workers are increasingly finding it important to include the attainment of environmental justice and sustainability as part of their social interventions. The phenomenon is being referred to as green social work and the article defines it in detail to indicate its suitability and practicability for current societal problems through the green social work’s characteristics and its practitioners with the help of a case study. Therefore, the author hopes that the paper will prove to be a good resource to equip and inspire the green social worker globally through the points given therein on the various aspects concerning green social work.
