This week he will be presenting his findings from the case study to both the Canadian Association for Social Work Education (CASWE) on May 31 and the Environmental Studies Association of Canada (ESAC), June 1.   

At CASWE, Professor Case will be presenting Energizing social work through eco-social community organizing: Insight from a comparative study of community-based water activism where he will be discussing the research and key findings. The next day he will present Energizing communities through grassroots water activism: Lessons from two Canadian communities at ESAC. 

The theme of the conference this year is Energizing Communities which provides a nexus for which Professor Case's research fits into from both the social work and environmental perspectives. 


Professor Rob Case is an assistant professor in Social Development Studies.
