The day will consist of three meetings. The first will focus on the family, another will deal with the importance of accompaniment and the third will focus on the vital need of man for otherness and physical contact.

The first dialogue will have the participation of Elena Alderius, director of the Center for Integral Accompaniment to the Family of the UFV, and David Santaballa, student of Early Childhood Education. Both will reflect on the relevance of the family and the possible reasons why this institution is in danger, today more than ever.

Maleny Medina, director of the UFV Institute of Accompanimentand Alejandro Carballo, coordinator of the department of UFV Social Action. On this occasion, the importance of being well accompanied will be shared, especially in difficult situations, where man needs to have the necessary support to be able to transcend pain, suffering and any other adversity.

Finally, the dialogue on otherness will feature Isidro Catela, PhD in Information Sciences and professor of Ethics and Humanities at the UFV, and Mariana Reyes, a Mexican student at the UFV. Both will inquire into the need of man, as a relational being, to count on the other, the sense of belonging and to maintain physical contact.
