31,000 Votes for Conservation

The European Outdoor Conservation Association is celebrating today having seen over 31,000 people across Europe get online and vote for conservation.

Following a successful pilot project last year with Trail Magazine in the UK, the European Outdoor Conservation Association (EOCA) set up partnerships with 4 national magazines across Europe, to encourage members of the public to get involved by choosing which projects should be supported by the Association’s 2001/12 funding round. In conjunction with Trail (UK), Sport Partner, Bike & Trekking and Lift magazines (The Netherlands), Alpin (Germany) and National Geographic Germany, shortlisted projects were showcased both in the magazines and online and the general public were then asked to go to the magazines’ websites to vote.
