The Entretantos Foundation is a non-profit entity created from a group of companies and professionals who have in common their commitment to citizen participation as a tool for collective construction and decision-making on common issues and public policies.

Its origin can be found in the professional fabric generated parallel to the implementation of different participatory processes of planning and management of the environment deployed in the first decade of SXXI, especially in Castilla y León, although currently their links have extended to Extremadura, Cantabria, Galicia and also other European countries.

In addition to the growing interest in social participation strategies and the collective construction of policies, there is also the need for institutions or centres that can serve as a reference in terms of the quality of the processes or the necessary training for their promoters. Faced with this situation, in the meantime it emerged as an entity capable of meeting these needs and becoming a reference point for the incorporation of citizen participation in democratic policies and institutions, seeking to lay the foundations for the generalisation of this type of process as a basic tool for planning, management and collective creation.

Thus, in the meantime we are committed to continue exploring, researching and developing innovative projects, new methodologies, working tools and ways of doing things, deepening the development of processes in which participation, collaboration, deliberation and collective construction are the key elements.

Consistent with this, training and communication are essential axes of our work, with the aim of extending the importance of these tools and the need to work together to improve the way in which we collectively manage the territory and relate to the environment.

Our team combines different profiles related to areas such as community participation, local dynamization of agroecological systems, research in extensive livestock and systems of high natural value, geodiversity and the protection of communal models of resource management.
