Social Innovation are all the processes, programs and initiatives that allow a profound change in the operation of the system, generating positive transformations and resilient communities.

As highlighted by the World Economic Forum (WEF), reducing inequality and accelerating real, meaningful and widespread inclusive growth are the most urgent challenges of our age. Social Innovation is an intersectoral collaboration, spaces where private sector, academia, public and other groups, work effectively and efficiently, seeking an impact and social transformation.

Contrary to what is first thought, this action represents much more, changes are needed at the individual, organizational and social level, as well as legal, cultural, economic, and political changes to help society and the planet prosper.

This is an essential process at a time when communities need new approaches and pathways to deal with social and environmental problems, that creates value for society and satisfies needs, where opportunities are seized and problems are solved through a systemic impact.

It means being more strategic, more ambitious, and more collaborative in how access and opportunities can be provided to low-income people, to participate in the local, regional and why not, global economy.

Integral Model Of Social Innovation

The social innovation model with which we currently work has evolved over the years, always looking for a deep economic, social and cultural transformation in the community. Today we focus on empowering the community of the Valles Region, consolidating their business models with economic sustainability and long-term viability, to raise their quality of life.

Based on this model, we work directly with entrepreneurs, artisans, small businessman, micro-producers, hospitality service providers and local inhabitants. We bring training and employability opportunities closer to them and their families through the alliances we forge with universities and organizations, we create spaces for development and education, we design and execute events that rescue and protect local traditions, but above all they put Tequila on the national and international touristic scene.

Training and Employability

We develop intrapersonal skills that include teamwork and leadership, which promote decision-making with creativity and innovation. We support finding ideas and solutions that add social value to the region and allow the preservation of the great cultural and historical heritage of the community and its surroundings.

One of the angular positions for this strategic line is that the beneficiaries of each program are involved with their own growth as much as possible, that they are aware of their own development. For us, it is essential to strengthen and follow up on the initiatives that arise from the community itself, which in the long run are the ones that they value and commit with the most, we are there to detect opportunities, provide guides and establish channels.

In addition to contributing to comprehensive and sustainable development, we want to promote the appropriation of essential values such as equality, justice, freedom and solidarity, to support the most vulnerable sector.

We work in co-creation to increase community empowerment and participation.

  • Intangible heritage management
  • Hospitality, gastronomy and culture of tequila
  • Training and social innovation

We seek social cohesion, improvement and the solution of problems that have an impact and social transformation, that are decisive in the consolidation of the Tequila Destination.

(PAP) Design as a development factor in heritage settings

These Professional Application Projects (PAP) began in the fall of 2016 as an initiative for organizational and economic promotion for artisan communities in Tequila, in association with the Beckmann Foundation.

The aim is to promote the development of micro producers and artisans, so that they can consolidate their business models, so that they have economic sustainability and long-term viability. The goal is to solve problems, but also to emphasize self-sufficiency and results orientation in financial strategy.

In the edition of the PAP Report (RPAP) it is reported on the methodological processes, research and on the developments and products achieved in each of the scenarios.

In 2019, 6 additional scenarios were intervened, maintaining the collaboration that has been interdisciplinary for three years now, with the support of 18 students and 2 academics.

Paola Vanesa Rodríguez Campos Strengthening Local Businesses

Paola Vanesa is a 24-year-old woman who is part of the statistics of the Tequila population who collaborates in a small business and seeks to formalize it and make it grow. At Beckmann Foundation we assume these conditions as a challenge and we are working to make Tequila a nucleus of entrepreneurship and innovation.

Today, Paola is writing her own success story, since, in addition to continuing to work in her business at the entrance to the town, she is studying the Diploma in Business, one of the 4 currently offered at the Tequila Social Innovation Center.

Launched in 2019, this project is one of the possibilities that have been created in partnership with Tec de Monterrey, where we have educational and training programs, available to all those looking for tools to get ahead and become professional.

Every person we manage to support is a hope for the progress of Tequila, to inspire the community and become a potential engine to promote a solidarity economy.

(PAP) Sustainable Housing

On the subject of caring for the environment and the search for sustainability, we have worked for the past year to build a house with the Tequila-Agave value chain using: bagasse fiber for brick construction, recycled bottles from the tequila industry, barrels that are used for the rest or aging of tequila, therefore, together with the academy, a series of resistance tests and investigations has been carried out. For the development of this project, 14 students and an academic participated, which consisted of the edition and printing of the book "Sustainable housing" on the agave-tequila production chain, a collaborative work between the Beckmann Foundation and ITESO.

Some of the main actions were an interview with management and presentation of the operational plan for the construction of the model house, visit to the property to be remodeled, data collection, measurements and key information. The result was the diagnosis of viability..

The main lines of action are the production of events, the digital platform and the communication strategy. It is an alliance of institutions with community efforts:

  • Voices of Tequila Committee: Main tequila houses, tourism promoters and relevant social actors in Tequila.
  • Associates: Collaborating actors in carrying out community cultural experiences.

Tonos Criollos Conscious Communities

ITESO's Professional Application Project (PAP) aims to offer organization tools to artisanal communities and small producers, promoting self-management capacities so that they can walk in the future towards a model of social, creative and economic development.

As a result of this alliance, today we can see evident positive impacts on the community, as is the case of Tonos Criollos, a project that aims to share and raise awareness about the value of creole corn and native products of the Sierra de Tequila region.

Each of these products are harvested organically and sustainably in the Mitlán community, in order to produce food with a higher nutritional value. We worked together with the farmers in the planning of their processes, and in the design of their brand and packaging for corn flour.

In all these interventions complex problems are detected, which are addressed and solved through interdisciplinary teams from a sustainable vision, including the development dimension of an alternative social economy.

Voces de Tequila Tequila Mushroom Fest

Tequila Mushroom Fest

Tequila dressed up in blue for two days, to celebrate the II Tequila Mushroom Fest, on the 17th and 18th of August, in order to spread and celebrate the importance of wild mushrooms that grow as part of the natural wealth that the Tequila Volcano offers. It is a celebration of the different varieties of wild mushrooms present in the Tequila region, having the Lactarius indigo blue mushroom as a special guest.

Among scientific, cultural and gastronomic activities, it is shared with the community and visitors, the great relevance of fungi for the development of the main ecosystem of the region: the Tequila Volcano.

This event is part of the actions taken by Voices of Tequila to achieve the commitment between actors. We celebrate the bio-cultural heritage of the region through exhibitions, cooking classes, tastings, talks, collections on the volcano and music.

Through this celebration, we want to raise awareness regarding the vulnerability and deterioration that the Tequila Volcano is suffering. This is part of one of the most important natural areas in the state that currently does not have the necessary regulations for its adequate protection and conservation.

By connecting scientific and traditional knowledge, gastronomy and cultural experiences, we seek to create awareness among the community and visitors regarding the natural richness of the volcano.

The II Tequila Mushroom Fest is possible thanks to the collaboration with the Department of Mycology of the University Center of Biological and Agricultural Sciences of the University of Guadalajara, where they have researched in the Tequila Volcano region for over 25 years.

Voces de Tequila The Day of the Dead Festival

The Day of the Dead Festival

The Day of the Dead Festival and Tequila Bread Fair is a cultural celebration that held its second edition on November 1st and 2nd, 2019, exposing traditional Tequila bakers.

The objective is to make this profession visible and revalued, as an activity that is an essential part of the cultural heritage of the town and that it promotes the encounter between the people of the community, as a starting point to give value to their identity and collective memory.

The Tequila Bakers Fair was the main element of the festival, where around 10 bakeries from the region participated, including families that for generations have dedicated themselves to this trade, thus preserving the tradition.

The main objective was to promote and benefit these bakers so that they can continue to function as key actors that enrich the gastronomic cultural heritage of Tequila.

In 2019, El Arenal, Amatitán and Tequila were the venues for the 3RD TRADITIONAL COOKS AND LOCAL PRODUCERS GATHERING, where we had the rural communities of Tequila as guests of honor.

There are many corners in Tequila where it is cooked in a traditional way, as grandmothers did hundreds of years ago. This great event invites the whole family to experience the delicious flavors of Tequila consuming products made in the region; to discover the aromas and flavors of the Agave Landscape Region in a celebration of the gastronomic cultural heritage of the community; and to collaborate with local economy and traditional cooks.
