A friendly and ecological building to show sustainability in practice
Terra.org is a useful website to promote environmental skills for a sustainable living style
Fundació TERRA or TERRA Foundation is a social instrument used to spread out the message that every person could and must do little things to contribute to the preservation of the environment.
The Terra Foundation is spanish non profit, non governmental organization founded in April of 1994 by independent people in order to improve the responsibility of our society in environmental subjects. The preservation of our milieu concerns all of us. It is for this that the Terra Foundation wants to act as a catalyst of enterprises which increases the environmental conscienceness of people and facilitates the access to reliable information.
At the same time, another goal we are pursuing is to promote model conservation projects in our natural heritage around cities. All of us are involved in the preservation of our natural environment and only with our common conducts can we contribute effectively to improve the world we will leave to the future generations.
What we work for
The main objectives of the Terra Foundation are:
- environmental sensitizing to promote a new socio-ecological ethic,
- promote energy efficiency and renewable energies, especially solar energy,
- help people change lifestyles as a tangible way of transforming our unsustainable culture on a sustainability goal.
To give new instruments of managing and teaching nature and the resources of earth, we publish a series of Environmental Education and Management Guides in Catalan and Spanish and mantain and update the website www.terra.org.
We hope that the regenerated environmental society we are dreaming of, will be ourselves when we have changed. We should not feel guilty for anything but jointly responsible for all, because until now, we have caused this damage together. Big problems are the sum of the little attitudes. We have to be conscious of this reality. The situation is worrying, but reversible. We have disturbed the biosphere and it is our task to restore it. To start, our goal must be to recognize it and asume the cost of changing. We have to ensure that the environment will be our own conscience.
