Invitation to the 24thJoint Asia-Pacific Social Work Conference 2017



On behalf of IFSW Asia Pacific, I would like to invite you all to the 24thJoint Asia-Pacific Social Work Conference of 2017 in Shenzhen, China.


We are living in an exciting yet critical time of globalization that demands global and regional solidarity from us accompanied by solid social work skills with thorough education and profound wisdom. The global social work world expects us to promote our practice in a visible way to show how we can contribute to changing of peoples’ lives through environmentally sustainable actions.


The conference theme will be “Challenges and Responsibility: Innovative Social Work and Sustainable Development” and it should bring us together to deepen the dialogue between social work practitioners and educators of the Asia Pacific Region. I am looking forward to meeting you all in Shenzhen, China in September, 2017.
