You are invited to participate in our educational tour, "Social Welfare in Cuba: a Holistic View of Human and Environmental Sustainability," October 31 - November 8, 2015. http://www.ecocubanetwork.net/socialwelfare2015.
The program is being developed by Eastern Michigan University Professor of Social Work Marjorie Ziefert, LMSW, ACSW in the US and the Antonio Núñez Jimenez Foundation for Nature and Humanity in Cuba, with Eco Cuba Network as program consultant. The Cuba Travel Service Provider will be Marazul Charters, a decades-old agency that has arranged Cuba travel for over 100,000 US citizens over the last forty years.
The program will be an exploration of Cuba's integration of social welfare principles and professionals into the implementation of policies of environmental protection and sustainable development. We are attaching an initial proposed program here. We will endeavor to integrate into the program, the meetings and site visits that reflect the professional needs and interests of our participants.
CECs: This trip is offered for 40 Continuing Education Credits (CECs) for Social Workers in the State of Michigan through the Michigan Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers. Members of Michigan Chapter of NASW will receive their CECs without any additional cost. Non-members and out of state participants will pay a fee of $250 to Michigan NASW to receive these CECs. Social Workers from other states will need to check with their state licensing authority to be sure these CECs are transferable (for most states they are). For further information about CECs contact Marjorie Ziefert, LMSW at email@example.com
