A detailed view of the activities carried out in Terra Foundation during 2007.

The year 2007 has been marked by two projects related to the promotion of the solar economy. In our country, we have been given the chance of investing in green energy against the climate change: the first project for "solar waves" developed a photovoltaic installation at the market in the district of El Carmel in Barcelona. The second one was an activity of solar technology transference in the island of Zanzibar, where the project was undertaken.

The Fábrica del Sol (The Sun Factory) was chosen to be financed by the customers of Caja Navarra. Likewise, the second edition of the Solar Festival of Barcelona and the consolidation of the Encuentro Solar in Granada marked a clear profile of the motivations of Terra Foundation.
The presentation of the annual report is an act of public transparency with which Terra Foundation would like to renew the trust of all of its collaborators. We believe that this document expresses the spirit that moves us as a social entity committed to the sustainability of the planet.  

The Earth Foundation has a simple structure that is well optimized, so that the resources used for the structural administration are minimal. This is mainly done with the volunteer work of the members of the Board and the partial collaboration of an economic adviser. This feature makes it so that 100% of the funds obtained are used towards the programs of environmental action outlined in the annual plan that develops the objectives of the Foundation.
