Today, Monday, the 17th March, voting is open on EOCA website! This is a public vote, which EOCA is running with the help of magazine partners, so everyone is invited to take part. Last year over 57,000 votes were cast! Have a look at all of the worthwhile and valuable projects which have passed EOCA’s criteria and got onto the shortlist this year, and vote for your favourites HERE. There are three categories of projects, and you can vote once in each category. The project with the most votes in each category will receive funding from EOCA of up to €30,000 to carry out the project.
Following the public vote, members of EOCA will be able to take part in a private vote to select further projects for funding. The results of the members vote will be announced in the summer.
The projects are put into 3 categories depending on their focus:
Nature projects are those projects concerned with the conservation of a specific species or habitat. Please choose your favourite from this category either on this website, or on the website of our partner National Geographic Germany.
Outdoor projects are those projects which are located in places where people go to walk, bike or enjoy water activities. Please choose your favourite from this category either on this website, or on one of the websites of our partners The Great Outdoors, NORR, Bike&Trekking, Hike&Trekking, or Sport Partner.
Alpine projects are those projects located at high altitudes. Please choose your favourite from this category either on this website, or on the website of our partner Alpin magazine
PLEASE NOTE: You can vote in each of the categories for your favourite project. You can however vote only once in each category – either on our website OR on the websites of our magazine partners.
