The Social Workers for Climate Action series introduces the novel area of green or eco-social work practice as it relates to the present and future serious risks posed by uncontrolled climate change. The series aims to give learners a broad understanding of the science underpinning the risk assessment of climate change impacts; and some of the possible implications of that risk assessment process for future social work service delivery.
This series will present of some of the knowledge, skills and values required by still emerging green social work practice response to climate change impacts in Australia. There will be facilitated discussion of climate change practice principles and challenges between participants; and an exploration of case study examples of the nascent Australian and international social work response to climate change in the field.
