History

  1. I guess if you''re reading this, you''re interested not only in Greenpeace, but perhaps maybe also considering becoming an active supporter.

    Being involved with Greenpeace means different things to different people, and so a range of opportunities exist that reflects the needs and experiences of the individuals involved. So for example, a typical mix of group activities might include

    · Letter writing or e-mail campaigning
    · Lobby politicians and companies
    · Campaign through your local media
    · Get Active with others in your town or region - Help at events such as
    · Glastonbury, Notting Hill Carnival, WOMAD
    · Fundraise for Greenpeace
    · Become trained in and participate in non-violent direct actions (NVDAs)

    Apart from the NVDA''s anyone can take part in the above activities without any special training and there are `street communication'' courses that can help develop your skills to deliver campaigns in public. Don''t worry if you are new to this - we all
    started as new at some point - what this means though is that you can work alongside more experienced people. We wouldn''t want you to do anything that you''re not happy with. As you become more experienced with Greenpeace, you will have the opportunity to take part in NVDA training and then part in national actions.

    Everyone is a volunteer and we all live lives outside and we all have different commitments - so we each do what we can, when we can do it do and with what we are comfortable doing.
