World Social Work Day takes place on 21 March 2023. This year’s theme is ‘Respecting diversity through joint social action’. It stems from the People’s Charter for a New Eco Social World and recognises that change happens locally through our diverse leaderful communities.
#WSWD2023 provides an opportunity to acknowledge how communities can make powerful actions that lead to inclusive social transformation. There are now many examples on the IFSW website that highlight social work’s role in working with communities in this journey.
IFSW President, Joachim Mumba said, “We invite all stakeholders to a new sustainable eco social world to join with us on this journey we must all take. Together, we will bring our local and global experience to make transformative change happen”.
