Al Borde is a life style... Without any expectation, suddenly it began on May 2007. Its headquarters is at 2800 m.a.s.l. in Quito-Ecuador. The responsible behind this idea are Pascual Gangotena, David Barragán, Marialuisa Borja and Esteban Benavides. Al Borde faces the practice from its multiple complexities and finds the gaps in the system to operate. They mix it up without any embarrassment, resilient by nature and reluctant to the dogmas. Their way of thinking has been developed on daily basis with hands on work. They are quite far off from theory and highly attached to the local reality. Their projects are always seeking to enhance local development and have a high component of social innovation.
