New Explore Fund Launched

North Face Explore FundThe goal of the new explore fund is to get more young people outdoors by funding programmes that reconnect children with nature to inspire and enable the next generation of explorers and conservationists.

Financial support of up to Euro 2,500 is available to not-for-profit community organisations across Europe for projects that encourage youth outdoor participation. Projects should focus primarily on creating more connections of children to nature, increasing access to both front and backcountry recreation as well as providing education for both personal and environmental health.
