A detailed view of the activities carried out in Terra Foundation during 2006.

Some of the highlights of 2006 were the Solar Cookers and Food Processing International Conference in Granada, the Solar Festival during the festivities of la Mercè in Barcelona, and the campaign against climate change called I am the Solution. Without a doubt, 2006 was a special year. Anyhow, the effort made by all the people involved in Terra Foundation made it possible to continue with the work that is usually carried out in four main areas: environmental awareness, promotion of green habits, giving a boost to the solar economy, and the development of efficient and sustainable energy.  

Likewise, as an entity attached to the Moviment Laic i Progressista (MLP), Terra Foundation stands out for the project promoting solar ovens as a tool for environmental awareness amongst youth societies.  

Terra Foundation owns a simple but efficiently optimized structure, so few resources are needed to manage it. This is performed essentially with the volunteer work from the members of the Board and the help of an economic adviser. This makes it possible for 100% of the funds received go to programs on environmental issues established in the annual agenda for developing the objectives of the Foundation.
