Global Agenda for Social Work and Social Development

Mar 15, 2011

The International Federation of Social Workers (IFSW), the International Association of Schools of Social Work (IASSW), and the International Council on Social Welfare (ICSW) initiated a discussion to develop a Global Agenda for Social Work and Social Development in June 2010. The following four areas provided the framework for the agenda:

  • Social and economic inequalities within countries and between regions
  • Dignity and worth of the person
  • Environmental sustainability
  • Importance of human relationships

Please take a moment to discuss the Global Agenda today, World Social Work Day, March 15, 2011. The final agenda will be submitted to the United Nations and other institutions in March 2012. For more information and to view the Global Agenda, please visit: http://www.ifsw.org/f38000378.html
