World Social Work Day 2023 poster launched: Respecting diversity through joint social action

The World Social Work Day 2023 (#WSWD2023) poster launches this week with the theme of ‘Respecting diversity through joint social action’.

The theme stems from the People’s Charter for a New Eco Social World. The Charter is described as a “living document and reference point that will grow as the world’s populations share their solutions to our joint challenges, so no one is left behind and all people can live with confidence, security, and peace in a sustainable world.” It identifies the need to promote and support local and global action and is the template to unlock the means to co-design and co-build a new eco social world.

IFSW says that the theme recognises that change happens locally through “diverse leaderful communities” and that #WSWD2023 provides an opportunity to acknowledge how communities can make powerful actions that lead to inclusive social transformation.

IFSW President, Joachim Mumba said: “We invite all stakeholders to a new sustainable eco social world to join with us on this journey we must all take. Together, we will bring our local and global experience to make transformative change happen”.

The COMPASS Jobs Fair, Birmingham will once again be leading into the World Social Work Day celebrations, taking place on Monday 20th March – with a free conference and exhibition sharing good practice in social work and social care.

Organisations are invited to co-brand and translate the poster into their own languages. Last year, the poster was translated into 100+ languages highlighting global professional unity and common action.

“We hope that most organisations will be able to translate the poster into their own language and send it to us to publish it on the IFSW website,” the Federation said.
