The European Outdoor Conservation Association (Eoca) is working in partnership with The North Face (TNF) to support the brand's Explore Fund, the grant funding program for conservation projects. The fund aims to create access and promote equality in the outdoors by funding non-profit organizations around the themes of Enabling Exploration and Loving Wild Places. Previously active in the U.S., the TNF Explore Fund is now expanding its funding across Europe, and Eoca will help the brand find suitable conservation projects with a lasting legacy. Eoca will be looking at organizations working in Germany, Italy and the U.K. Once projects have been shortlisted, TNF employees in those countries will choose which projects they would like to see funded.
