Discussion: Comparing Change and Advocacy
Although related, social change and advocacy differ in important ways. Each brings with it a particular perspective that has implications for the actions you might take toward resolving professional and societal issues and, therefore, the results that would ensue from these actions.
To prepare: Review this week’s Learning Resources. Think about the distinction between social change and advocacy perspectives related to the professional or societal issue you selected for your Capstone Project. Consider the implications of these differences on actions that you might take, as well as the potential results.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post your perspective on the distinctions between social change and advocacy regarding the United Nations Environmental Protection (. Discuss the implications of these distinctions and differences. Then, explain the actions that you might take from both social change and advocacy perspectives to address the primary issues related to the strategic plan you will develop, as well as the potential results.
Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources.
