Non profit organisations can apply to the Association for grants to implement a conservation project in any country around the world except North America (where the Conservation Alliance provides funding for conservation efforts from the North American outdoor industry).
Projects must protect a threatened species or habitat AND have a link to the outdoor user.
All projects MUST involve hands-on conservation work.
Members of the European Outdoor Conservation Association can nominate up to three projects (from different, or the same organisations) each year.
The projects to successfully win funding will be chosen from the shortlist via a public vote. The public vote is held in conjunction with a range of national magazines throughout Europe.
