Construction of Europe, our challenge

Social work’s mission is to promote societal change through an improvement of social conditions and citizen’s well-being. The base is a civic and democratic engagement and the belief the future social reality is modeled by our current actions. This is what forms our engagement and motivate our implementation in  European areas for citizen participation.
