Oliver HUET – Director Ecole Pratique de Service Social – We stand united/Social Work in Paris

Riceviamo e  diffondiamo il messaggio del Direttore della Scuola di Servizio sociale di Parigi.

Dear friends and colleagues in Social Work,
A week has not yet gone by since the savage attacks in Paris. Our thoughts of course, go to the victims, their families and friends.

In these dark hours, your continuing support to our country from across the world has given us hope, and strength, and we would like to thank you for that.

But France, alas, is not the only country where “liberté, égalité, fraternité” are under attack. For many, it is an everyday reality.

Today, we stand united in the belief that democracy, education, freedom of thought and speech remain the best weapons against violence and obscurantism.

We are firmly convinced that the key to a better world lies in building bridges between people, not walls; that ideas, creativity and social progress are the cement of the future, not its downfall.

As Social Workers in a global society, we know how important it is to promote peace and understanding between communities, to foster diversity and social harmony.

At Ecole Pratique de Service Social, right here in Paris, we believe that Social Work, like hope, is truly without borders.
