World Social Work Day 2020
World Social Work Day is celebrated each year on the third Tuesday of each March. This year, it falls on Tuesday, 17 March 2020. World Social Work Day is when we celebrate and recognise social workers as champions for social justice, self-determination and human rights.
This year's theme is Promoting the Importance of Human Relationships.
Social workers are skilled, knowledgeable and specialise in issues related to social and emotional wellbeing. Working holistically with individuals, families and communities, social workers are passionate advocates for a fairer Australia. We have created resources for organisations and individuals around Australia to host their own World Social Work Day events, available on this page.
AASW branches around Australia will also host events. Visit this page regularly for updates.
On 17 March 2020, we want #WSWD2020 to trend on Twitter. Last year, we got to #2 on Twitter - can we take it all the way to #1 this year? Let's do it! Share your photos, videos and stories of 'human relationships' and let's celebrate social work!
