WSWD 2021 collage

CSWIR is delighted to share our global network map and photo collage in celebration of World Social Work Day 2021.

Members of the CSWIR global network sent in pictures of objects that represented social work for them in their own specific national context. Submissions ranged from the role of social work and social worker, ethics and values of social work, concepts in social work such as hope, happiness, resilience, strength, focus on those who are particularly vulnerable, social work and everyday life, movements within social work, the Covid-19 pandemic and challenges for social workers and service users, the new normal of social work with online collaborations and the need to encompass digital tools to remain close to people.

These images emphasised the WSWD 2021 theme, Ubuntu: I Am Because We Are - Strengthening Social Solidarity and Global Connectedness.

See the picture gallery below to view the images and their descriptions.
