Now that was a busy 3 months! Thanks to everyone who got involved in the spring public vote which reached record numbers of people worldwide – over 60.4 million! And how satisfying to be able to support the highest number of projects in one funding round in the Association’s history. Being approached and collaborating with Sony was a first, which resulted in large amounts of media coverage for EOCA. All this means that we have lots to discuss and celebrate with members and potential new members at the OutDoor tradeshow next week in Friedrichshafen, where we will also be busy raising more money for conservation…..

Now that the rush of ispo is finally settling, EOCA has some very exciting news about the project voting for you to get involved in.

As the website continues to grow and we are learning about the joys of Facebook and Twitter, our shortlist of conservation projects seeking funding for 2011/12 is about to be unleashed on an unsuspecting public - so you can get involved in helping us choose which projects to support!
 
If you are an individual who loves the great outdoors and would like to support our projects, please click the donate button below. During 2017, all money donated will fund tree planting in Nepal as part of our 2 Million Tree Project.
We are hugely grateful for the support of the European Outdoor Conservation Association, without whose support we could never have realised such an ambitious project.
