"Volunteers are not paid—not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless." (thanks for the quote Dora!)
Volunteers in Australia and the Pacific are an essential part of Greenpeace's success.
As a volunteer, you can spread the word online and in your local community, get hands-on experience in our campaigns, and help us raise vital funds for a greener, peaceful future.
Wherever you live and whatever your lifestyle, there's a way for you to get involved.

Current available office positions
In your community
Enjoy talking to people and working outside? Our Community Activists get mobile and spread the word in their local communities. They help out at stalls, events and rallies, meet their local MPs, collect petition signatures, conduct research and inspire people to take action.
Taking action from the comfort of your chair plays a vital role in winning campaigns. We need people to become an Armchair Activist and respond quickly to media debates, write letters to politicians, post blogs, participate in our cyberactions and use their networks to spread the green and peaceful word.
Competing in a sporting event? Celebrating a birthday, wedding or anniversary? You can become a fundraiser for Greenpeace at the same time.
