Who we are ?

How can we transform patriarchal structures and become aware of dynamics of power, violence and inequality that exist based on gender?

With financial support of Erasmus+ and Movetia we develop an innovative process to accompany organizations as well as individuals in getting more awareness of gender topics and creating transformation towards gender equality.


GATE process is an international cooperation project with the following organizations…

Altekio, iniciativas hacia la sostenibilidad, S.Coop.Mad. is a non-lucrative workers cooperative created in 2008 with the idea of offering solutions from an integral perspective to the social, ecological and economic problems of the communities and territories. We generate ideas and develop projects in the areas of environment, community development and social economy.

Tekio calls community work in which each member of the community offers what he/she has for projects that contribute to the common benefit. It is a word that comes from the indigenous communities of the region of Oaxaca, Mexico. Going ‘al Tekio’ is the sense, the attitude and the option that unites us. The initiatives towards sustainability are our work, the common work in which each person of the cooperative contributes with their baggage and their future.

  • social ecology and sustainability;
  • group facilitation;
  • social innovation and citizen participation;
  • and social and solidarity economy.

We do this work through trainings, innovation, research, intervention, consultancy and projects of various kinds, and always trying to blend the areas into more integral projects for eco-social transformation. We created this association inspired and supported by Altekio S.Coop. Mad, a social cooperative based in Madrid and working worldwide.

To strengthen our local impact and gain experience in organizational transformation processes, we are glad to collaborate with local associations in each country.
