EOCA Presence at OutDoor by ISPO

Release date: 07 June 2022

After a break of over 2 years, EOCA is delighted to be able to be joining other exhibitors at OutDoor by ISPO this weekend. Back with its ever-popular fundraiser in room E128, the association is also keen to emphasise what has been achieved over the last 30 months, as well as reconnect with members and potential new members over the 3 days of the show. See the attached leaflet for details of the fundraiser!

With all activities needing to go online, and project progress being put on hold whilst the world dealt with the Coronavirus pandemic, EOCA’s members were steadfast in their support of the organisation, enabling over €1 million to be committed to 32 projects in 22 different countries around the world. Not content with that, member companies also helped raised money online to support EOCA and its projects, with over €153,000 being raised through gear sales, online events and even a garage sale!

With over 940 applications for funding over the 2 years, competition for funding was fierce, with the shortlisted projects that took part in the online votes attracting 180,000 votes from outdoor enthusiasts and those with a passion for conservation. Launching its new 2 year focus: Wild for Nature: EOCA’s Landscape Legacy Project in 2021, EOCA will ensure that all funded projects are addressing biodiversity loss and climate change in fragile landscapes around the world. Last year alone, EOCA funded projects working in and impacting over 472,000 hectares!

 

Joint General Manager Tanya Bascombe commented, “Thanks to the ongoing and incredible support we are grateful to enjoy from our members, the last 2 years have seen EOCA go from strength to strength. Having not seen people face to face, and we are delighted to be seeing companies again with so many good news stories after such a long time. Catherine and I are very much looking forward to renewing existing relationships and embarking on new ones with those that are not yet part of the EOCA family.”
