World Social Work Day 2016
World Social Work Day 2016 (WSWD) is on March 15th. The theme ‘Promoting the Dignity and Worth of Peoples’.
WSWD 2016 creates another opportunity for the profession to express international solidarity and to bring common messages to governments, regional bodies and to our communities. The theme for this, and the last, WSWD comes from the Global Agenda for Social Work and Social Development. Each of the five Global Agenda themes runs for two years and 2016 is the second year for Promoting the Dignity and Worth of Peoples.
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.
To translate the poster into another language, download the Word version and replace the English text with your language. Please send IFSW the translation, specifying which language you have used and once we have verified the translation with our corresponding member it will posted on the website.
