IFSW is delighted to announce a side panel event for the upcoming 62nd session of the Commission for Social Development, emphasising the critical intersection of social justice and ecological sustainability. The event, titled “Rights, Voice, Protections: Co-Creating Social Justice in an Eco-Social World,” aims to spotlight the pressing goal of eradicating poverty within the framework of planetary boundaries.
Aligned with the People’s Charter, the IFSW event will discuss the imperative of including workers in participatory processes, ensuring that social protections are accessible and that community-led systems are strengthened to support generations to come. The discussion will delve into how the social solidarity economy and the provision of decent work can be powerful catalysts for income generation and poverty alleviation, particularly when focused on small-scale, community-level initiatives that prioritise both people and the environment.
This side event features esteemed social work professionals. Attendees can expect to engage in meaningful dialogue on how to foster social development and justice through policies that can accelerate progress on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and contribute to the overarching goal of poverty eradication.
IFSW invites social workers, policymakers, academics, and advocates for social and environmental justice to join this pivotal discussion and contribute to the global movement toward a more equitable and sustainable future.
