Theme: Education in a world in crisis: How philosophy for/by children might respond.
The conference took place in the Museo Nacional de los Ferrocarriles Mexicanos, in Puebla.
The city of Puebla de los Angeles was the first city in Central Mexico founded by the Spanish conquerors in 1531, strategically situated midway between the port of Veracruz and Mexico City, was the second most important city during the colonial period. It is located about 100 kilometers West of Mexico City, at the foot of one of the largest volcanoes in Mexico, the Popocatepetl. The new aesthetic concepts resulting from the fusion of European and American styles are peculiar to Puebla, where you can admire the Mexican Baroque and the Indigenous Baroque in its numerous buildings. The city was inscribed to the World Heritage List in 1987. (whc.unesco.org/es/list/416http:/www.worldheritagesite.org/list/id/416).
