Joint World Conference on Social Work, Education and Social Development (SWESD)

Under the title Promote Human Relationships: Bridging the Future, the event will promote a discussion on how Social Work education, research and practice as well as social policy should move forward: 

  • finding alternative responses to promote human well-being, so as to enable everyone to become fully integrated in their social life; 
  • developing actions and policies in order to ensure people’s fundamental rights without losing sight of their abilities and capabilities; 
  • promoting the development of welcoming and educated local communities, empowered through people' participation. 

These alternatives, in accordance with the founding principles of social work and social development, can build bridges between social actors in the community (public institutions. non-profit organisations, for-profit agencies, etc.) with the aim of creating a new network of solidarity.
