Get together, Gear and Great Ambition at ISPO 2017
Launching a public fundraiser, hosting a get-together and an all important gear sale are just some of the things the European Outdoor Conservation Association (EOCA) will be involved in at ISPO next month.
To mark and celebrate EOCA being 10 years old and having given €2 million to conservation, the Association launched an ambitious plan in 2016 to plant and/or regenerate 2 million trees around the world. Trees provide huge benefits stabilising slopes, protecting coastlines and providing oxygen, for example. EOCA has already committed to funding 5 new projects which together will plant over 1 million trees. In addition, EOCA members The North Face, LOWA, Nikwax and Marmot have been supporting their own tree planting projects and projects for 2017 are currently being assessed.
