Walter Lorenz - Social Work - Central and Eastern European Countries


  • Oldřich Chytil University of Ostrava


As president of the European Centre for Community Education – ECCE it is a great pleasure for me and a special honour to contribute (in the form of an epilogue) to the Festschrift which is published and dedicated to Walter Lorenz on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday.

I would like to mention and stress the fact that this Festschrift has only been made possible through the cooperation of ECCE and the online-only journal “Social Work &Society”, a journal which is open to and free of charge accessible by the whole scientific and professional community all over Europe and in the rest of the world.
