EOCA at ISPO 2018

The European Outdoor Conservation Association (EOCA) is poised once again to raise funds for vital conservation projects at ISPO at the end of this month. With a stand in the West Entrance, a presence in the new CSR hub in A4, a target of planting 2 million trees by the summer and a conservation fundraiser on its stand, the scene is set for an exciting show.

The ever popular Conservation Fundraiser will be held on the EOCA stand in the West Entrance. Visitors will be able to make a donation for conservation in return for some great gear generously donated by 28 EOCA member companies. This year, the fundraiser includes jackets, packs, sleeping bags, climbing gear and hammocks. All money raised will be spent on conservation.

EOCA is now getting very close to its target of planting 2 million trees. The ambitious target, launched in 2016, was established to celebrate EOCA having spent €2 million on conservation. Planting these trees will benefit wildlife, communities, outdoor enthusiasts as well as play a small part in tackling climate change. To help the Association with the final push for this target, four member companies are holding events on their stands to raise money specifically for a project planting trees in Nepal. Bergans, Klean Kanteen, CamelBak and Kutupayisi (brand Puhu) will all be aiming to raise as much money as possible, with every €10 collected funding the planting of 25 trees. In addition, the hugely popular KEEN footwear sale is back – A2/402 at 16.30hrs on Monday 29th. Get there early to avoid disappointment!
