EOCA Conservation at ISPO: Fundraising and Forwards to the Future

Looking forwards to a cold and snowy ISPO in Munich at the end of the week, there is much news from the European Outdoor Conservation Association to melt even the largest icicles.  The Conservation Fundraiser is back with fundraising efforts around the show, a Happy Hour and the launch of EOCA’s new focus are helping to shape a busy few days to come.

Thanks to the generosity of EOCA’s members, the Conservation Fundraiser will be boasting its largest number of items yet – with offerings of hammocks to skiwear, mugs to climbing harnesses and everything in between.  KEEN Footwear has donated 60 pairs of walking boots, which will be available throughout the show from the EOCA stand in West entrance.

Bergans of Norway will again be running its ReDesign programme on its stand (A2/102) from Sunday to Tuesday of the show – take your old outdoor gear for repair and watch Bergans produce their ReDesigns live on the stand:  small products made from old textiles or leftover materials.  Klean Kanteen’s mugs complete with reusable straws are back by popular demand – filled with free freshly brewed coffee, espresso or cappuccino if you take them to their booth (A4/421)!  All proceeds for this and the events above will be going into EOCA’s 2019 spring projects which will be chosen by the public and members at the end of March.
