This experience is oriented towards those who are parents, accompany and take care of children, and to people who promote ways of living that focus on childhood. What are the rights of children and what can we do to respect them? How do we accompany girls, boys and children so that they can feel and be free? In an open conversation with Gina Jaramillo and Germán Paley, who promote the Collective Niñeces Presentes, we will discover how to make the world go around in favour of children. Far from stereotypes and social norms, this is a playful invitation to rethink everything we learned about childhood and this way favour new models of learning and living together so that children can be the main characters.

Just as the Internet has become an essential tool that structures so many aspects of contemporary life, so it also brings challenges, problems and threats, perhaps precisely because it has become so important in our lives. Technological sovereignty, cyber-surveillance, algorithm-based inequalities and even our dependence on the Web are topics that cannot be ignored. The thinker and author Yásnaya Elena Aguilar (Mexico), and the journalists Emma Graham-Harrison (United Kingdom) and Marta Peirano (Spain), will talk about these matters with Ana Pais.
