SINAL is a local-global learning center for the transition to a sustainable future.

We prototype solutions for the regeneration of communities, food systems and forests and disseminate them through education, products and services for conscious markets.

We offer experiential learning opportunities, no matter age and background, for change agents who want to make a tangible difference in a complex world.

We pioneer the cultivation of the power of place: spaces with qualities that facilitate a connection with yourself, others and nature for disruptive solutions and growth. We believe that the best ideas come when diverse perspective converge. Therefore, SINAL is a space for convergence of people with different backgrounds, education, language, culture, experience and age. Through our events, courses, and life in the "living laboratory," we are constantly exposed to other points of view but with a common mission to build a better future.

SINAL stands for Sincronicidade, INovoção, and ALegria (synchronicity, innovation and joy). Our spirit and values are embodied by the name. By synchronicity we mean aligning daily life with a new global spirit for change. Innovation means creating a better future by overcoming outdated paradigms and actualizing new possibilities. Alegria is the joy we find by working with loving hearts and lots of laughter, and by staying light-spirited in the face of negativity.
