What is social action?

As can be understood from the name itself, there are three main points to concepts: first, the presence of social action, than those who take the action and the third expected to benefit from the action.
Social action is defined as an individual, group or community effort under the social philosophy and practices aimed at achieving social development to adapt social policies to improve the service of social legislation, health and well-being. From this description, we can understand that social action is an active, conscious, thoughtful effort.
This means that any person, group or community can directly participate in activities and social action process to help other individuals and groups that deal with a particular social issue or for whom a positive social change is needed. A community can engage in social action to solve his own problems.
A more formal definition of social action has been systematic, constant efforts aimed at influencing fundamental social situation and policy, from which arise the problems of social adjustment and mal-adaptation of our services to be addressed if social welfare (and Sheafor Morales, 1997). Social action is an important part of social services. Both definitions make this fact clear: social action is an effort. Who can make his effort, systematically, is programmed and conscientious.
