Who We Are:

SWI is a 501 (c) (3) supported by donations, governed and staffed by social workers. We provide practical resources to address the problems that social workers address every day. Today, that means using our power as a profession to force the changes necessary to save our civilization from the existential threat of Climate Change and it means dealing with the problems created for our clients by Climate Change.  

     

What We Do:

To meet the challenges of Climate Change for our profession and out world, social workers and other helping professionals need to understand what Climate Change is, what changes it is making and will make in our lives and the lives of others.  We also need to have methods for planning our reaction to the changes already underway and for insisting that changes in the way our society operates happen to avoid the worst potential outcomes.   SWI is determined to provide that understanding and planning to whoever is willing to make the effort to change their practice to meet the challenge.
