Live Panel facilitated by The International Federation of Social Workers

The International Federation of Social Workers panel will discuss the transition to a new eco-social world. As social workers, we recognise that for sustainable, positive change to take place, people and communities need to be active leaders in the decisions that affect them. Our contribution to this Summit will focus on how people globally can work together to effect transformational change that leaves no one behind. We will include examples based on the social work profession ́s learnt experiences of facilitating collective responses, utilising the ethical principles such as, ´respecting the diverse contributions within communities´, ´recognising the strengths and resources in communities´, and the ´promotion of all people rights and responsibilities´.
