4 OKT | Covid and social work in Namibia

Covid and social work in Namibia

4 October 2022 | 19:00


It is time we talked about Covid-19 once again!

We know it has been two (soon three) long years with the virus but the pandemic is far from over. With the pandemic leading to initial cuts in development programs and vaccines still distributed highly unequal among nations, it is important to discuss the effect decisions made by policy makers in the global north had on people living in the global south.

On Tuesday October 4th we would like to invite you to shift the focus away from Germany and take a look at how the pandemic has and continues to affect social work in Namibia.

During the roundtable we will explore the impact the pandemic had on development cooperation and social work in Namibia, with experts in the field who were working in a variety of organizations when Covid first took over. All our speakers are part of NGOs that are providing different kinds of social work and have worked on developing response strategies for their respective organizations.

We want to discuss the challenges that arose through the pandemic and are still affecting the country until today. What challenges arose for social work because of the pandemic and what did this mean for their funding? How can development cooperation account for these experiences and challenges in the future?

We invited three representatives of the Namibian civil society to discuss the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on Namibia, particularly on social and ‚development‘-related work.

The online event will take place on the 4th of October at 7 PM. You will receive the meeting link shortly before the event if you registered yourself through our website. The event will be held in English.

If you have any questions or would like to receive further information, please contact Jasmin Schmitz (Jasmin.schmitz@polis180.org).

Buchungen sind für diese Veranstaltung geschlossen.
