We aim to take individual and collective climate action - at individual, community and societal levels.
Social Workers for Climate Action is our antidote to fear, overwhelm and eco-anxiety.
Our individual and collective action enables us to remain actively engaged in environmental and climate issues, as we know that a) the solutions exist right now and b) it's not solely up to us, and us alone, to fix it; combined individual and collective action is how we will turn this around.
Climate change is happening now. This is why we are taking action now.
the time to act IS now.
