Volunteers

Volunteers are at the heart of Greenpeace. We are always looking for passionate people who can help! As you know, there is a lot of work to be done, and we can’t do it alone. We offer many unique opportunities from participating in high-profile actions to discussing environmental issues with the public at festivals, conferences and other tabling events.

Your first step in becoming a volunteer is signing up for our Volunteer Newsletter. You will be sent regular updates and you will be notified of important volunteer orientation and planning meetings, as well as when we are looking for people to participate in specific activities. We may ask you to attend an event with us, paint a banner, help us in the office, or assist us in organizing an activity!

We have regular volunteer opportunities near our regional offices in Vancouver, Edmonton, Toronto, Montreal. So if you live in one of these cities, your second step is to attend one of our orientations meetings and get active!

If you don’t live in one of these cities, we also take action in different parts of the country and need your help remotely. We promise to keep you informed on how you can help out from home; however these opportunities are not as frequent. If you are really eager, it’s best to sign up as a Cyberactivist and help support our campaigns through online actions and activity. If possible, you can also join one of our semi-autonomous Local Groups near you and connect with other Greenpeace volunteers in your local area.

I first started volunteering with Greenpeace in the Toronto area in late 2014 and one of the many things that I jumped on pretty quickly was the Toronto-based workshops that they sponsor and help organize through Tools for Change (TFC)...

Ottawa's Seedy Saturday: Growing a Greener World

Blog entry by Dave Beddoe | March 10, 2015

Not all food is ecologically equal; some methods of farming add substantially to the carbon overload in the atmosphere, while others sequester carbon in the living soil, mitigating global warming. That's why the Greenpeace...
