Our volunteers are absolutely awesome. In fact, more than awesome – they are enthusiastic, passionate, committed, hard-working, inspirational people without whom we could not be the Greenpeace we are today.
They have helped us to take our campaigns into local communities, to create banners in our warehouse, to spread the word online, and to get involved behind the scenes in our offices around the Australia Pacific region.
Jarren Nylund grew up in Mullumbimby, near Byron. He is now heading up our passionate group of volunteers and activists in Brissie.
