    DescriptionOne of the most contemporary areas in social work research and practice is eco social work. But what exactly is it, and how does it make a difference? Eco social work – also referred to as ‘green social work’ or ‘environmental social work’ – is concerned with how environmental issues, such as extreme weather events and climate change, affect people and communities. Social workers operate at multiple levels within practice, including with individuals and families, organisations, communities and all levels of government. This breadth of activity and associated skill equips social workers for addressing the effects of climate change on human wellbeing.
