Greetings to all social workers
On behalf of the IFSW President Silvana Martinez, the IFSW executive, the 141 national association members and partner organisations we want to invite all social workers and people interested in social development to participate in this year’s Global Social Work Online Conference titled: The 2020 to 2030 Social Work Global Agenda: Co-Building Social Transformation.
This online conference will be free for all participants. Never before has the social work profession had the opportunity to bring everyone one together without costs and without travel visa requirements. It will be a conference true to our values of inclusion, diversity and full participation.
Our joint task in this conference is to explore and develop strategies that will heighten the impact of social work over the next ten years. The title of the conference includes the words: ‘Co-Building Social Transformation’ and this refers to our work with families, communities, mass social movements, nations and globally as we play our part in transforming the world into a place of inclusion, equality and sustainability and where all people experience dignity.
We look forward to your participation in this forward-thinking, innovative and inclusive conference. Your perspective is needed, so please register by visiting the IFSW website and all of us in IFSW look forward to engaging with you in July.
Rory Truell. IFSW Secretary-General
