The Association have currently 109 members of this ‘not-for profit’ Association, stretching from Norway to Spain and from the UK across to the Czech Republic. As a charitable organisation directly funding specific projects, the association wants to show that the European outdoor industry is committed to putting something back into the environment, and all working together a real difference can be made.

EOCA Vision: The European Outdoor sector will significantly contribute to the conservation of wild places and ecosystems for future generations.

EOCA Mission: To support valuable conservation work by raising funds from within the European Outdoor sector and promoting care and respect for wild places.

“How did you,Rune, become involved with EOCA? Bergans of Norway are one of my sponsors and asked if I would be interested in being an Ambassador for EOCA. It was easy to say yes to promote such a worthwhile organization.”
