Y este año, en el que  se cumplen 100 años del nacimiento de Nelson Mandela, la Conferencia se ha desarrollado en honor a este hombre que tanto hizo por la Paz. Hemos puesto bajo su advocación esta 2ª Conferencia para hablar de Paz, teniendo como guía su pensamiento y alguna de sus posiciones más claras que nos proponemos nos sirvan de ejemplo: "Al salir por la puerta hacia mi libertad, supe que si no dejaba atrás toda la ira, el odio y el resentimiento, seguiría siendo un prisionero" Ese es Madiba, como gustaba llamarlo su Pueblo.

Mandela nos dejó un legado inmenso y algunas muy claras señales de qué hacer con los que consideramos "enemigos".


"La mejor manera de terminar con un enemigo, es proponerle hacer algo juntos y transitar así el camino que nos lleva hacia la amistad".


¡Gracias por ser parte!
