ENGLISH
Friends:We can nally welcome you to our place in the world: the enchanted islands o the archipelago o Puerto Rico. We celebrate the 20th International Democratic Education Conerence (20 IDEC 2012)in the magical, autonomous city o Caguas. Your presence here excites us and, especially, lls uswith hope. Puerto Rico has much to oer to 20 IDEC 2012. But we know you also have much tooer us in what we hope is the eve o a major transormation as a country and you are part o thatprocess.IDEC 2012 is not only an international conerence. It is a starting point, a space where large andsmall projects are born that change the lives o people around the world. This is why our inspira-tion and theme o recent months has been that the most important day o 20 IDEC 2012 has to beApril 1st. We say this because what makes IDEC truly relevant all year long is the work that we areable to pursue since the day we say arewell to the conerence. That is the moment when our work begins rom what has been cultivated during our time together.In order to guarantee proound ootsteps, and responding to the Puerto Rican situation, this yearwe will have a room named Proyecto País (the Country Project). This will be permanently opento welcome the discussion o all the people and organizations that have ideas about Puerto Ricoand, in many cases, have already begun to implement them. We want to provoke a sustained dia-logue beyond March and, as a result o Proyecto País, arrange a concrete, inspiring statement thatleads to the agreement o all these eorts or a common purpose: to build the country we need,want and can.Another important part o this IDEC will be the First Regional Gathering o the Americas and theCaribbean. On March 29th, we will meet to shape this project, through which we aim to constitutea collaborative region o North, Central and South America and the Caribbean or an alternativeand democratic education that deends the human rights o children and youth. We want to createmore opportunities or exchange, dialogue and dissemination on the social and cultural diversityo our hemisphere. For our youth, educators, scholars and community leaders to deepen on theeducational experiences o their countries and participate critically in their potential or change.We will work vigorously along this exciting journey. Our desire is or you to take along everythingyou have come looking or in this gathering. And we hope that, in the process, you all get to knowour country, our reality, and eel welcome rom the very depths o our culture. To each and everyone who has supported to make this dream a beautiul reality, thank you. Withall our heart, thank you or the solidarity you have already shown by getting here. May you enjoythe conerence since the very moment you arrive and until its last second.Welcome to Puerto Rico!Justo Méndez Arámburu Ana Yris Guzmán Torres

 Youth Leadership
20 IDEC 2012 has been designed so that youth areully integrated into the conerence through theYouth Forum. The youth rom dierent countrieswill not only be providing support organizing andmoderating activities, they will propose and do! Theyhave undertaken the responsibility or opening theplenary sessions, acilitating the workshops and theIDEC Dialogues, and will actively participate by tak-ing positions and generating proposals throughoutthe conerence. I you have not yet joined this collec-tive, you can still do so during the Conerence.It’s your Conerence!
Languages
At IDEC conerences, it is common or dierentcultures and languages to live together, understandeach other, and create new riendships and col-laborations. English is the language most commonlyspoken across countries attending IDEC. So, althoughthe IDEC 2012 is being held in Puerto Rico, a span-ish speaking country, we have taken both languagesinto consideration. Throughout the program thereare many alternatives in either language and all ple-nary activities will have simultaneous translation. Allplenaries, IDEC Dialogues and Room 4 Yunque whichwill host Featured Speakers will have simultaneoustranslation rom spanish to english and vice versa.We will also have simultaneous translation in ger-man and korean language. Throughout the programall activities that have simultaneous translation willbe identied with this symbol, .In the daily program tables, the activities that are inenglish appear with english titles and the activitiesthat are in spanish appear in spanish. It’s your Con-erence!
Workshop Design
One o the most un and challenging aspects o organizing the 20 IDEC 2012 has been experiment-ing with new ways o carrying out workshops,conerences and dialogues. We wanted to dedicateconsistent space to ve thematic conversations. Wewill be discussing: Puerto Rico, Human Rights andAcademia, Democratic Practices, Art and Movement,and Film and Media. You could dedicate your time toone theme and attend all your sessions in one spacewhere the conversations will fow rom one to the
