World Social Work Day for 2021 was held on 16th

March. It is the key day in the

year that social workers worldwide stand together to advance our common

message globally.

This year, the 2021 World Social Day highlights

Ubuntu: I am Because We are - Strengthening Social Solidarity and Global

Connectedness.

Ubuntu: 'I am because we are' is a concept and philosophy that resonates with

the social work perspective of the interconnectedness of all peoples and their

environments. It speaks to the need for global solidarity and also highlights

indigenous knowledge and wisdom. Silvana Martinez, IFSW President

commented:

The theme comes from extensive consultation within IFSW and beyond. At a time

when global politics has retreated into nationalism, Ubuntu is a powerful message

on the need for solidarity at all levels: within communities, societies and globally. It

is a message that all people are interconnected and that our future is dependent

on recognizing all peoples involvement in co-building a sustainable, fair and socially

just future. IFSW invites all social workers, partner organizations and people

who care about the future to co-brand the poster. Together we can change world

for this and future generations.
