03 Agosto 2017,   Categorías: ,   Por ,   0 Comentarios,  

Immersed in the preparations for the Be the Change Celebration, we start our first important countdown. There is little more than three months left to reunite in Spain all the people who make the DFC spirit come true all over the world. We expect more than 22 delegations and about 500 participants. We are so excited! We are preparing for all assistants a very inspiring program full of talent, and, above all, based on the “Better Together” philosophy. We give you a sneak peek.

As you know, our great rendezvous will take place in Madrid the weekend of the 11th and 12th November. They will be intense days of cooperative work, companionship, commitment and celebration. Together we will experience the transformative power of alchemy and we will bring forth the magic of the projects that change the world.

Apart from the traditional project presentations from each participating country, the BTC program will be structured around three other important activities: inspirational talks, workshops and performances by special guests. As a preview, we can tell you that, at least, we will have:

  • Inspiring talk by Kiran bir Sethi. We could not miss the inspiring words from the founder of the DFC movement.
  • Workshop with Sergio Fernández Luque. Yes, “The Chef of TV Channel 1” will give us the recipe of his success.
  • Performance by Kike Labián, percussionist and co-organizer of the TEDx Youth event.
  • Lego workshop to learn by playing in teamwork, building prototypes and solving problems

We can all participate

With the inspiring motto Better Together, we can all participate in the BTC. How? We propose to you two ways:

  • #MuyFanDFC. You know that “Share” is one of the essential phases in the DFC methodology. In the same line, we want the BTC 2017 to be very present in the social networks and media. Some of you are being great amplifiers of the I CAN spirit in those channels, you are #MuyFanDFC and this is how we want to identify you. If you feel like collaborating in the dissemination of the BTC, write us an email to with the subject #MuyFanDFC explaining the motivations to help us.


  • Workshop proposals. The BTC 2017 program is alive and can be completed with more workshops. We give you some premises: it has to be attractive and cooperative; for 20 to 80 people, whether children, young people or adults, 1 hour in length and, if possible, that language is not a barrier. Do you have any idea? Let us know by sending us an e-mail with the subject TALLER to with all the details and we will contact you.


We give you in advance our gratitude for being part of the DFC movement and for your help.
