Greenpeace Local Groups are made up of self-organizing volunteers who are driving change in their community and beyond. These groups work semi-autonomously to campaign on local issues or support Greenpeace campaigns nationally and internationally with local events.
They hold regular group meetings, organize outreach events, have trainings and launch campaigns - all while supporting a people-powered movement across Canada. Whether interested in starting a new group or joining an existing group - you’ll receive support and resources from Greenpeace to become a leader in your community. This is a perfect opportunity for a volunteer who wants to take their local activism to the next level and work with Greenpeace. To find out more, see the pages below or contact a Local Group Coordinator in your area:
