Host and Organizers

The 2006 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF SOLAR COOKING AND FOOD PROCESSING is hosted by Terra Foundation and is co-organized by Solar Cookers International. Our interest is to provide a congenial atmosphere for the cross-fertilization of ideas and knowledge.

We also look forward to share Granada's cultural legacy, gained through secular crossing between different cultures, being the five centuries coexistence between Muslims and Christians perhaps the most remarkable and unique. Solar technology show cases and gastronomy will also be attended.
Granada's overview


Granada is a friendly city located between mountains, on the land of the sun and next to Mediterranean coast.
