We are looking for inspiring ideas and ‘good practices’ related to this year’s theme that will help students reflect on their roles as health/social workers. We encourage our students to learn about developments in health and social work in an international perspective. We kindly ask all contributors to work with the studentst in an interactive, practical and creative way. We suggest starting with examples from professional practice and linking those to theory. This approach helps students relate to the material.

We strive to offer as much of the program as we can on location,  though we provide for hybrid and online possibilities. If you would like to contribute to the International Week, please complete the participation form. You can register until October 31.
