Grand Challenges: Social Work for Today and Tomorrow.
The ‘Grand Challenge’ initiative seeks to identify ambitious yet achievable goals for society that mobilise the profession and capture the public imagination, and as such demands innovation and breakthroughs in research and practice to achieve change and real transformation. Drawing upon experiences from social work and other cognate professions and disciplines, this conference calls for engagement from social work and other professions, through its leaders and practitioners, to participate in and identify the ‘Grand Challenges’ facing our society and social work today.
This conference aims to reflect on our achievements to date and to identify the ‘Grand Challenges’ for the future, an approach already in existence in the US. The conference will provide a platform for discussion, debate and the dissemination of ideas, and facilitate the identification of these ‘Grand Challenges’. Submitted abstracts should reflect the core themes of a Grand Challenge Initiative and will contribute to the establishment of a ‘Grand Challenge Initiative Programme’ for Social Work within the UK. Such a development is one way to assert social work’s ethically driven social justice approach both nationally and internationally.
