More than ever before, social workers are being called to play a more significant role for achieving the United Nations’ goals for sustainable development. In particular, sustainable development is much more than ecological and economic concern; and therefore social workers are being urged to analyse the broader social and cultural aspects of common people’s lives and intervene for social transformation towards ecological justice. Within this particular context, this course is designed with theoretical and practical examples for social workers to get equip for sustainable development interventions at micro, mezzo and macro levels.
