Madre Tierra, Una Sola Salud
Encuentro para entender y aprehender:

Alentando las ansias para preservar la vida,
Cultivando los afectos, defendiendo la tierra, cuidando los antibióticos,
Recuperando los sueños olvidados, los saberes populares,
Transformando la angustia colectiva en esperanza,
Caminando juntos, buscando el Corazón de la Ciencia y la Vida.
