EOCA's recently launched a 5-year strategy which has climate action at its heart.  It also launched its new 2-year focus for 2021 and 2022, Wild for Nature: EOCAs Landscape Legacy Project. This focus ensures that projects EOCA funds address the loss of biodiversity in landscapes around the world. 
 
The companies involved will be raising funds in a number of ways. Please scroll down to read all the details as we receive them!  Some are hosting events on their own websites, others are donating product via Outdoor Gear For Good. All are giving you the opportunity to buy some fantastic items, whilst at the same time, making a difference to our wonderful wild places! Come back to check for updates over the next month.

Outdoor Gear For Good (OG4G) is a not for profit, community interest company. OG4G sells outdoor items donated to it during events such as this, and at other times throughout the year via its Outdoor Gear For Good eBay shop, and its website, with 100% of the profit coming to EOCA.   Check out the shop for great gear AND the opportunity to make a difference.   Please note that not all of the items will appear at the same time so please do keep re-visiting to see new items. 

A huge thank you to all members and to Outdoor Gear For Good for supporting conservation in this way.

Monies raised through this initiative will be put towards EOCA’s conservation projects over the coming year. Some of the money may also be used to help cover EOCA’s core costs, if they are not covered through other funding streams, which indirectly supports the funding of the organisation’s conservation work.

“The excitement we felt at hearing we had been awarded EOCA funding for the Fix the Fells project has now been matched by our excitement at seeing the completion of the vital path repair works to two of our most stunning Lakeland fells; Scafell Pike and Striding Edge on Helvellyn. Thanks to the money generously given by EOCA these two popular routes are now fighting fit for the future.”
