Dear Colleagues!

The Forsa Conference 2020 will be held in Iceland on the 4th to the 06th of November 2020 and the theme is:

“No one will be left behind”. Social Work and Sustainability.  Opportunities and Challenges for Social Work Practice, Education and Research.

It is important that the workshops and presentations have a strong focus on the theme of the conference. The Global Agenda for Social Work and Social Development (2010) identified four themes or pillars:

  • Promoting social and economic equality
  • Promoting the dignity and worth of people
  • Promoting community and environmental sustainability
  • Strengthening recognition of the importance of human relationships.

We invite participants to focus their presentations on these themes in a context bearing on the Un’s Sustainable Development goals.

It is possible to submit an abstract for;

  • Workshop up to one hour
  • Presentation of 15 minutes and 5 minutes discussion.
  • Posters

Deadline is the 1st of June 2020.

We hope that your participation in selecting the workshops and presentations will ensure we have a quality programme. We are looking forward to meeting you in Iceland in November 2020. Please send all abstracts before 1st of June 2020 to the conference organizer.

If you have any questions you can also send queries to the same e-mail address. For further information on the conference please check back frequently to the website. And we recommend that you follow the conference Facebook page:

Best wishes from Iceland on the behalf of the conference committee.
