About 56 teachers from all levels of education, mainly primary, participated in this activity and were taught by activist Frans Limpens.

According to Limpens, this workshop is based on coexistence and conflict resolution without the need for violence, so that teachers can transmit these behaviors to students through the dynamics that involve them. “With these games we build a series of skills and potentialities to work.”

For her part, Sofía Velasco, president of the Commission, expressed her desire that this activity be implemented in all schools of the State. “It depends on the decision of the Ministry of Education, if we are able to continue to give this workshop course,” she said.
