“As President of IASSW I’m delighted that the GA process initiated in 2010 has now become a global movement. During the past months, IASSW has conducted extensive consultation through our regional and national bodies and I’m glad that we have finally arrived at the GA for next decade, 2020-2030.
The IASSW members of the task force led by Abye Tassé, Angie Yuen and Antoinette Lombard, have offered an important contribution to the definition of the general frame “Co-building social transformation” and of the first theme. The choice of Ubuntu is especially timely at this juncture because of the global socio-political tensions heightened by the COVID-19 pandemic. I look forward to the collaboration of the social work community, especially those from social work education to strengthen social solidarity and global connectedness through our joint effort.”
Annamaria Campanini, President of IASSW
