Spanish term or phrase: ecologismo social
Another phrase from an ecological text. I think it's a new buzz word (or rather buzz phrase !). Any thoughts on the best way of translating it ?

Thanks in advance

English translation:social environmentalism
Explanation:
The word "ecologismo" exists, and it is environmentalism or conservationism.
I think the correct answer is "social environmentalism", as it seems to be a branch of study.

Explanation:
I would leave it at ecology. Ecologismo is a "neologism" in Spanish also.

Ecología Social would be correct, so I would translate it as Social Ecology.

Hope this helps! :)
