We are moving full steam ahead with our preparations for the ‘Be the Change’ Celebration.  The countdown has begun. There are a little more than three months left till all the people who make the DFC spirit come true all over the world, reunite in Spain. We expect more than 29 delegations and about 500 participants. We are so excited! We’re planning a very inspiring program to showcase the talents and testaments to the value and impact of the philosophy they embody, which is the theme of the BTC this year: “Better Together”. We would like to give you a sneak peek of what’s in store.

As you know, our great rendezvous will take place in Madrid, the weekend of the 11th and 12th of November. These will be intense days of collaborative work, companionship, commitment and celebration. Together we will experience the transformative power of “Better Together”, and this magic alchemy will transpire as our change-makers share the projects that changed the world.

Apart from the traditional country project presentations, the BTC program will include other CANtastic activities including inspirational talks, workshops and performances by special guests. Here’s a sneak preview of what you can look forward to:

    • Workshop with Sergio Fernández Luque. Yes, “The Chef of TV Channel 1” will teach us his most successful recipe.
    • Performance by Kike Labián, percussionist and co-organizer of the TEDx Youth event.An inspiring talk by Kiran bir Sethi. Our celebration would be incomplete without the inspiring words of our inspired founder.
    • Lego workshop to learn teamwork, building prototypes and problem solving through play

Everyone CAN Participate

With the inspiring motto ‘Better Together’, we can all participate actively in the BTC.

How? We can suggest at least two ways:

  1. #MuyFanDFC.You know that “Share” is one of the essential phases in the DFC methodology. Likewise, we want the BTC 2017 to be very present in the social networks and media. Some of you are great amplifiers of the I CAN spirit along these channels. You are #MuyFanDFC. This is how we want to identify you. If you feel like collaborating in making the presence of the BTC felt in the social media, send us an email to: spain@dfcworld.com with the subject #MuyFanDFCtelling us why and how you’d like to help us.

2. Workshop proposals. The BTC 2017 program is a work in progress and it can be enriched with more workshops. If you’ve got an idea, here are some guidelines for what we are looking for:

  • it has to be attractive and collaborative
  • suited for 20 to 80 people
  • suitable for children/young people/adults?
  • One-hour long
  • Preferably language free

Would you like to offer some of your special magic? Let us know by sending an e-mail with all the details to: spain@dfcworld.com, subject: TALLER.

We will contact you.


We would like to express our gratitude in advance for being part of the DFC movement and for your help.
