The memory of a tragic day
The date was incorporated into the academic calendar in 2007, by the Ministry of Education of the Nation, in commemoration of the students and the teacher of the ECOS school who lost their lives in a road accident when They were returning from a solidarity activity at School No. 375 in El Paraisal, in the province of Chaco.
From that fact, relatives and friends of the victims, organized in the fight to demand that Road Safety be a State policy and reaffirm that these are avoidable tragedies.
At the same time, after the tragedy, various musicians driven by Luis Alberto Spinetta, who got involved with the tragedy after his daughter Vera had been a student at the Villa Crespo school and a friend of the boys who died, they decided to hold an annual charity concert.

The guiding idea of the initiative was give continuity to the work carried out by the victims, in support of the civil association formed by the families of the victims.
On the other hand, the fact of having an event every October 8, not only makes visible the message of the Association Conduiendo A Conciencia, but also the close bond that musicians have had with this cause since 2006, committing themselves and helping to give continuity to the work they do throughout the year.
