Promoting ecosocial transition through permaculture: A practice tool for social work
Permaculture may be used as a practice tool for environmental social workers to promote ecosocial transition. It is a social change movement that promotes local production, recognizes the importance of community, and rejects notions of individual entitlement to more than a fair share. It seeks to create ecologically and socially sustainable systems, thus combatting environmental degradation and addressing climate change. In this chapter we report on interviews with permaculturalists and explore the lived experience of permaculture and its relevance to ecosocial transition. Drawing from our experience as social workers, we pose that a partnership approach between social work and permaculture is needed to advance ecosocial transition.
