The European Outdoor Conservation Association‘s (EOCA) annual spring Vote for Conservation will run over the next two weeks, and everyone is invited to help choose some of the projects to be funded on the EOCA voting website.

The association will fund more conservation projects in 2021 than ever before. Following the success of EOCA’s two-year focus Plastic Free: Mountain to Sea, which saw, amongst other actions, over 4,000 km of habitat cleared of plastic pollution, the association is now launching its next two-year focus Wild for Nature: EOCA’s Landscape Legacy with this funding round. The focus will see projects funded that address the double threats of biodiversity loss and the climate emergency.

The European Outdoor Conservation Association is an initiative from the European outdoor industry with the objective of protecting wild areas. The current EOCA sustaining members are: Pertex, Keen Footwear, The North Face, Nikwax, ISPO and OutDoor by ISPO and the European Outdoor Group (EOG).
