Please, let us receive all your wishes for your experience and stay in Puerto Rico. Also, any difficulty that you may confront to be able to share the wonderful experience we are working intensively to offer you.’

Justo’s list of speakers includes Yaacov Hecht, of the Institute for Democratic Education in Israel, Elizabeth Baker from the Patchwork School, Colorado, which is to host IDEC 2013, Jerry Mintz of AERO, Shilpa Jain from Shikshantar and Justo himself.
