Today, on the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, social workers all over Europe are active in public to raise the awareness regarding the complex and devastating effects of poverty.
IFSW Europe encourages decision makers to take the social workers expertise and experiences into consideration and listen to those who should benefit.
Nobel Economic Prize winners 2019 show how important it is to respect the genuine knowledge of the recipients of any kind of support. We need to learn from those who we want to help.
Social workers all over Europe are practicing this approach in their everyday work. Today, they present concepts and models of social services that successfully combat poverty.
President of IFSW Europe
