Social change is simply the transformation of the cultural landscape. It is the changing of the way of life. There are features about social that include unplanned events. It also may be controversial, longer lasting, and even happen in a fast pace. There are four types of social movements which are: (1) alternative social movement, (2) redemptive social movement, (3) reformative social movement, and (4) revolutionary social movement. The key features for an alternative social movement would be that it is the less threatening of the four and limited to a smaller population. The key features for a redemptive social movement would that they target individuals and seek more radical change. An example of a redemptive social movement would be an organization called MADD, also known as Mothers Against Drunk Driving. It is a movement trying to stop people from driving while intoxicated. A reformative social movement would have features of limited change but is targeted to everyone. An example would include the social change to “recycle, reduce, reuse.” It promoted recycling to better the environment. The fourth movement, which is called the revolutionary social movement is the most radical and extreme change. A great example of this social movement was when Ghandi led to create the Indian independence movement.
