France's Outdoor Sports Valley (OSV) is launching a new fundraiser to promote environmental protection and physical outdoor activity. The program, in partnership with the endowment fund of Banque Populaire Auvergne Rhône-Alpes, is called “ACT for the Outdoors.” The mission of ACT for the Outdoors is to support community projects of social benefit, which will be funded by a diverse range of stakeholders including businesses, communities, associations and individuals. OSV is concurrently calling for projects in the framework of this initiative. The projects can be submitted for consideration by French non-profit organizations of public interest until April 10.
