Our President, Ana Lima-Fernandez, together with Rory Truell, General secretary of IFSW celebrated WSW Day 2017 participating in the event on Social Work and Sustainable Development at the UN in Geneva.
Every year in March people throughout the world celebrate World Social Work Day. The International Association of Schools of Social Work (www.iassw-aiets.org) and the International Federation of Social Workers (www.ifsw.org) have introduced the annual celebration, jointly organised by their respective Representations at the UN in New York and Geneva.
