Green social work has transformative potential. It can encourage community residents to change their behaviour and develop more resilient and sustainable pathways to sustainability. Working together with those inhabiting communities assists in the transformation of social work theory, education and practice. In this chapter we consider how green social work can be mainstreamed so that all social work students and practitioners can become aware of environmental issues and environmental justice and incorporate it into their daily work. Such action can contribute to the development of a green society.
