Rarely can Greenpeace win campaigns alone. It’s the power of acting together that creates positive change. Our power often lies in our ability to act as a catalyst in mobilising others. Without the support of thousands of passionate people who share our vision for a greener world, we could not achieve important changes.

We need you to help us!

Join one of our fabulous groups taking action in various ways and help us win our campaigns. These groups carry out specific tactics and offer different levels of involvement to suit you.
