Greenpeace Extra

Greenpeace Extra

Greenpeace Extra or GPx, is a free online petition site that allows anyone to start, run and win campaigns on local issues that concern people and their lives directly. It can be big or small, heroic or ordinary. This is about giving power to the people. From saving 274 acres of Botanical Garden Reserve Forest to rescuing Appu (a young elephant) and finding a proper channel to dispose garbage in Tamil Nadu – GPx campaigns vary depending on the need of the hour.

So far, Greenpeace India has been campaigning on issues such as stop climate change, promotion of sustainable agriculture and the use of sustainable energy. But GPx is the solution to the challenge of balancing national campaigns with local needs, as it allows individuals to work on issues that have an immediate effect on their lives. GPx also assists local campaigners with resources as well as a strategy to get their issues known to a much larger audience.

Janet Vrinda, Online Campaigner with Greenpeace India works directly on campaigns featured on GPx and helps people like you and I start campaigns, literally walking them through decisions like, ‘who should it be directed to, what to ask, the timeline and why is the issue important’.

She explains, “GPx is a tool for people to work on issues beyond Greenpeace India’s scope. GPx acts as a trigger and an effective platform to facilitate a positive change. Protecting the environment and providing solutions towards sustainable progress is an important factor for a growing economy like India, as making people conscious, aware of issues and getting them to act on them is the biggest challenge we face today.”
