Elisa Guerra (Mexico) is a teacher, writer and friend to both children and trees. In 2015 she was named Best Educator in Latin America and the Caribbean by the Inter-American Development Bank, and has been shortlisted for the Global Teacher Prize twice. At this event she will talk about her latest book, Las voces de los árboles, in which she takes us to a parallel world where trees of different species and from different places around the world tell us their stories and lead us to reflect on the damage we are doing to the planet.
The guests at this event have made changes to the world for which they have been recognized; all of them have experience working for social change, creating and maintaining organizations that have had a positive impact on the lives of many. Andrew Bastawrous (United Kingdom) leads Peek Vision, whose platform strengthens health systems to improve vision and eye health. María Adelaida López (Colombia) is the head of aeioTU, a social enterprise that develops the potential of childhoods throughout Colombia and which offers education of quality, helping to decrease the inequality gap. Louisa Mitchell (United Kingdom) runs West London Zone, an organization that works with young people at risk of social exclusion, and with their families and educators. Andrea Bernal will talk to these guests about the reasons they have chosen the area where they work, what motivates them and what their personal experiences have been.
