Co-building a New Eco-Social World: Leaving No One Behind

Watch this space for IASW plans to celebrate World Social Work Day 2022. 

The theme: ´Co-building a New Eco-Social World: Leaving No One Behind´ coincides with the theme of the people´s summit that will take place on the 29th June to the 2nd July.

The theme presents a vision and action plan to create new global values, policies and practices that develop trust, security and confidence for all people and the sustainability of the planet. World Social Work Day 2022 will be a highlight opportunity for the social work profession to engage all social work networks and the community they work within to make contributions to the values and principles which enable all people to have their dignity respected through shared futures.

World Social Work Day is celebrated across the world. The 2022 theme has been promoted by social work and now involves extensive global partnerships representing 100s of millions of people. IFSW President, Silvana Martinez said. ´The Co-building a New Eco-Social World peoples´ summit has brought large and diverse groups together with a common vision and shared starting principles. Collectively we are the largest civil-society organisation comprising the world’s trade unions, health sectors, Faith Invest network, global student bodies, international social work, United Nation’s agencies, social movements, academic networks and many others. The 2022 World Social Work Day will act as a platform for this initiative, to engage all communities so they can have their say in what kind of collective world they want to live in. I urge all social workers to become involved in this global mass movement for change´.
