Contents of "Social Report 1994-2004"

The activities carried out during the first 10 years of operation of Terra Foundation are gathered in this 83-page publication, edited in 2005, that compiles the report of activities and the social balance of the organization.

The beginnings of Terra Foundation
On the 7th of April 1994 three friends with a long history of working in different conservationist organizations decided to create a new environmental organization with only one objective: to create a place to encourage practical ecology, with the aim of contributing to a change in our habits in order to be more respectful of the environment. With this aim Terra Foundation was created. The Foundation was born with a clear conviction: the environmental problem was a problem of culture and it was clear that it was not easy to gain access to the information that would help overcome the ecological crisis that we face. It became obvious that we cannot think about an ecologically minded society if we do not change ourselves first.

Projects for the environment
Terra Foundation has always been a modest entity in all aspects and with a limited capacity. However, its main assets have been the innovative ideas on environmental matters proposed to the society.
