Conservation projects awarded EUR€175,000
As a generation we are taking a journey that none of those going before us has had to face – our world is changing quickly, dramatically and possibly irreversibly. An initiative launched in 2006 by the European outdoor sector, the EOG Association for Conservation, is aiming to make a difference. Its key objectives are the preservation of the natural, wild areas that as outdoor enthusiasts, we care so passionately about and to raise awareness within the industry for the need to conserve and protect the environment.

The ‘Get Something for Something’ Fundraiser
With the popularity and success of the EOG Association for Conservation Fundraiser at the OutDoor show in summer 2007, which helped to raise an additional EUR€15,000 for projects, the Board of the Association has decided to run the event again.

During 2017, all money donated will fund tree planting in Nepal as part of our 2 Million Tree Project.
The funding is enabling us to repair a damaged section of the iconic Three Peaks long distance footpath and restore an area of internationally important upland habitat. Voting for our project was a simple but highly effective way for our supporters to show how strongly they felt about improving access and protecting the landscape of this wonderful area. Thank you , EOCA!
