Urban diversities – challenges for social work
The project Urban diversities – challenges for social work involves 5 European universities in urban areas. Today’s European cities are more diverse than ever. Immigration, socio-economic inequality, increasing diversity of identities, activities, mobility and lifestyles, all contribute to a state of superdiversity. This demands the particular attention and competences of social workers.
The project aims at developing and implementing a ‘blended learning course’ that strengthens the capabilities of (future) social professionals to intervene in situations that involve urban tensions and complexities. By linking education, practice and applied research through community-service learning and transnational learning, this project contributes to innovation in social work education and practice.
