World Social Work Day 2015

World Social Work Day 2015  (WSWD) is on March 17th. The theme ‘Promoting the Dignity and Worth of Peoples’ relates to the second pillar of the Global Agenda for Social Work and Social Development. The theme focuses the joint work of The International Federation of Social Workers, The International Association of Schools of Social Work and The International Council on Social Welfare. The three organisations are committed to working together to influence international, regional and local policies, government actions and to highlight the value and contributions that social workers make everyday throughout the world.

Read the global report on the first pillar here.

All social work partners and members are welcome to co-brand the WSWD poster by adding their logo alongside the IFSW logo. We also invite member organisations to translate the poster into their own language. Last years poster was translated into 33 languages highlighting global professional unity and agreement to stand together and act on the theme.

Please email your translations to: global@ifsw.org

IFSW will add your translated poster on our website so that it can be shared with the world. We hope that most organisations will be able to edit the poster for translation themselves, but if this is not possible, send us a word document with your translation written beside the english version and we can translate the poster for you. Please note that the IFSW relevant member organisation must approve the translation which may take a few days.

Thank you to all – it is a significant professional step forward that world-wide social workers promote the dignity and worth of peoples!
