Abstract

This article reviews the emergence of sustainable development, considers the problems attached to it, and argues that a critical and holistic understanding of sustainable development in which the environmental, economic, cultural, and social are deeply interwoven may be one potential pathway for social work to contribute to the human and nonhuman world.
