The world looks to be changing.
We are witnessing a series of changes between the countries, in our specific context, the bilateral relationship between the United States and Mexico, could turn us back to a point where none of us has seen before. All these changes have been promoted based on the implementation and maintenance of a series of stereotypes, which, as we know, do not represent the objective reality of any culture.

It is our responsibility, the teachers located on each side of the bridge, to fight that these currents do not destroy the work that has been done over the years.

On our end - the teachers from Mexico - we understand that we have to work a little harder, always having the mission of making the international community, to see that our country has a great variety, and that we have many people who work and study every day to live in a country - and in a world - better.

This panel is a sample of those practices that we have developed, together with our partners in the COIL courses, in order to question - or to break - with those stereotypes.
