This website, https://www.terra.org/, is one of our key projects. Our vast library – more than 830 articles covering ecology, environment and climate change since December 1999 – is a source of objective and reliable information, inspiration, commentary and advice for Spanish speakers around the globe.
A long history of Impact
Terra has been creating an impact since 1994, with campaigns, educational programmes information and events. Our web in Spanish explains many of these projects including the “Guerrilla Solar” (Terra manufactured solar panels and inverters that could be plugged directly into home sockets, as a protest against the Spanish Government’s effective prohibition of home-generated solar power), and our “Solar Cook” programme (we promoted and sold solar ovens to hundreds of people across Spain). There is more about these programmes in our terra.org website.
