Also, we organize different retreats with our coworkers so you can join us at one of the Spanish islands or we can just go camping on the Portuguese coast.

When we are not working, we are probably spending time at one of the natural swimming pools, hiking or discovering nearby villages.
Our long dinners are very “serious”. It’s the place where many important decisions, partnerships and ideas are made.
When you wake up in the morning, there are no traffic lights and other micro stresses. You just grab your freshly squizzed orange juice and a coffee and you get to work. As we like to say, Sende is a place where deadline does not hurt.
OUR PRODUCTIVITY TOOLS THAT WILL HELP YOU WORK BETTER
Fresh mountain air for a good sleep (we recommend 9h sleep, with the optional siesta). In the summer, the sunset is around 22:30, so you will have a plenty of daylight.
Pick a fountain or a tap and drink a fresh water that comes directly from the spring.
You may pause Spotify and listen to singing birds and streaming water while working. Nature is everywhere you look.
Food is cooked and ingredients are coming from the village gardens and local markets. You will eat well while knowing who planted tomatoes. We created menus for the productivity while BBQ is reserved for the lazy days.
Feel free to do some sports. In Sende you can swim, hike or ride a bike.
When you create something in the city, you look at the window and you see shops, bars, and restaurants. These are all places where you spend your money. It gives you kind of pressure that you should work harder to afford it. But, when you look from the window in Sende, you see a fig, a pear, and mandarin trees. Jump in the garden and eat until your stomach hurts, for free. This time you don’t think on the money. It gives you the liberty to create better and to build more meaningful stuff. Without pressure.
Project Writing Meetup is an event that gathers project (grant) writers together to work on their next deadline. Project crafting is often a hard and boring job, especially if you do it alone.
We have created methodology that helps organizations finish their grants while enjoying the writing process from the mountain. If your organizations want to have more grants applied in a limited time, please contact us here.
Sende co-organizes at least five international trainings each year. We are specialized in conflict-transformation, peacebuilding, and entrepreneurship.
Professional educators and participants from the whole world gather in our village to learn more about the important topics that are supporting local communities all the way from Armenia and Georgia to Colombia. On these projects cooperate with Youth Peace Ambassadors Network.
During the year you may attend various events in Sende. Bosquexo is rural sketchers meeting that gathers professional and amateur illustrators to draw in nature. Bosquexo is a week of intense drawing, fun, concerts, and exhibitions. This event became quite popular in Spain and tickets are usually gone in 24h. In case you would like to attend international Bosquexo in English, please send us a mail, so we can consider organizing international version.
We also organize rural Hackathons, meetups in the forest where we get to cook gourmet meals while chatting about businesses, innovation, and creativity.
Beside local meetups, our team travels a lot. This year we have visited 11 countries and in each place, we held one or more meetups where we provide a space for networking of professionals. Sometimes we just organize mini-meetup with people who have stayed in Sende and keep our community alive
