Join our Volunteer Activities!

As a volunteer, you'll help to drive change online and in your local community, get hands-on experience in our campaigns, and help us raise vital funds for a greener, more peaceful future.

We need passionate, energetic people who are keen to make a difference.

How does it work?

Our volunteer leaders have a hefty line-up of campaign events and activities on their calendars -- but we need you to bring them to life!

The help our communities really need

Blog entry by Taahir Chagan | April 22, 2013

"Not Another Fukushima"

Blog entry by Gift Gerald Moyo, Greenpeace Africa volunteer | March 12, 2013
