SEMPRE at the Joint World Conference on Social Work, Education and Social Development 2018 in Dublin

This major conference was organised on behalf of the International Federation of Social Workers, the International Schools of Social Work and the International Council on Social Welfare. Around 2400 delegates from around the world assembled in the Royal Dublin Society between 4 and 7 July 2018 in order to discuss issues related to the conference theme “Environmental and Community Sustainability: Human Solutions in Evolving Societies”. As John Brennon, the Chairperson of the Local Organising Committee put it: “The conference [brought] together practitioners, academics, educators, policy makers and users of services from around the world to discuss key issues that affect their lives and those of the individuals, families and communities with whom they work.“

 

User-involvement was of recurring relevance and showed up in a vast number of lectures, workshops and keynotes. The SEMPRE partners from Denmark, Finland and Germany were particularly proud to have been offered the opportunity for a poster session to present SEMPRE to the conference delegates. See the poster they have displayed here:

It was an exciting experience for Anette, Kati and Doris to share experiences, knowledge and insights with colleagues from all over the world. In particular, colleagues from Canada were a real highlight for all three SEMPRE partners. Events such as this conference in Dublin stress the relevance of international networking, professionalization and knowledge transfer and may even inspire further social innovation projects.
