Associação Terra Sintrópica

Associação Terra Sintrópica is located in Mértola, in the rural interior of southern Portugal, in a region with a semi-arid climate and a high vulnerability to desertification and climate change. Despite its rich cultural and natural heritage, the limitations described above, combined with some human practices, led to accelerated desertification, migration and depopulation. 

However, despite these limitations or perhaps because of its existence, Mértola is also a territory of resilience, creativity and high social capital. Values dear to this association that tries to transform weaknesses into strengths and, in a restless and resilient way, make this territory an experiment territory for new solutions, a Laboratory of the Future for the Agroecological Transition, through the concept of "Regeneration through use".
