Greenpeace is a non-governmental environmental organization with offices in 50+ countries. The goal of Greenpeace is to ensure the ability of the Earth to nurture life in all its diversity. They focus campaigns on worldwide issues such as climate change, deforestation, plastic pollution, overfishing, and commercial whaling. Greenpeace uses direct action and lobbying to achieve its goals. They do not accept funding from governments, corporations, or political parties, and rely on three million individual supporters and foundation grants. Greenpeace is known for its direct actions and has been described as one of the most visible environmental organizations in the world. It has raised environmental issues to public knowledge and influenced both the private and the public sectors. Greenpeace is open to everyone and offers many ways to get involved, from signing petitions online to nonviolent direct action. To get started, search for your national Greenpeace organization. From there, you can sign up to receive their newsletter, check out their online action items, and search for a local group. They can also help you start a local group if there is not one in your area!
