Debate on: The Global Agenda for Social Work and Social Development – and World Social Work Day 20-March-2012 – #SWSCmedia Debate @SWSCmedia

Next week there a are a number of events and important events and activities (both online and face-to-face) to celebrate Social Work Week #SWweek, beginning with World Social Work Day #WSWDay (Tuesday, 20 March 2012) to United Nations’ Social Work Day #UNSWDay (Monday, 26 March 2012).

Therefore, our topic for next week’s debate (20-Mar-2012) is the “Global Agenda for Social Work and Social Development” and we will have a special Tweet up session from London Metropolitan University. We hope you can join our debate by using the hashtag #SWSCmedia.

Social work is an international profession with shared values and ethics. Therefore, the International Association of Schools of Social Work (IASSW) and International Council on Social Welfare (ICSW) together with International Federation of Social Workers (IFSW) have developed the “Global Agenda for Social Work and Social Development“.

During World Social Work Week (20th to 26th March 2012) the Global Agenda will be officially presented to:

  • Westminster and UK national governments;
  • Helen Clarke, United Nations Development Programme Director,at the UN in New York;
  • UN offices, the European Parliament and national governments around the world.

Furthermore, we are also starting the hashtag #GASWSD. to  continue the discussion in relation to the Global Agenda, and for Social Work Week, we will do a compilation of all tweets using the hashtag #GASWSD and/or #SWweek. Tweet us your thoughts, actions, views, and reflections using  #GASWSD and/or #SWweek in order to initiate and sustain a Global conversation focused on Social Work and Social Development and to connect the Local, National and International.

We look forward to seeing you in our debate @SWSCmedia on the “Global Agenda for Social Work and Social Development” on Tuesday (20 March 2012) at 8:00 PM GMT / 4:00 PM EDT.
