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.

“The excitement we felt at hearing we had been awarded EOCA funding for the Fix the Fells project has now been matched by our excitement at seeing the completion of the vital path repair works to two of our most stunning Lakeland fells; Scafell Pike and Striding Edge on Helvellyn. Thanks to the money generously given by EOCA these two popular routes are now fighting fit for the future.”
