There is a lot to be done when protecting the planet for future generations and help is always welcome.

Greenpeace International is based in Amsterdam and we have volunteering opportunities from time to time for those who are interested in helping us out in the office and, occasionally, in the field.

In order to volunteer at the Greenpeace International office in Amsterdam, you must be in possession of an EU passport or valid Dutch Working permit. 

The availability of volunteering opportunity at the office varies depending on ongoing projects. So please email us if you are interested and available - don't just grab a train/bike and ride up to the front door.

If you meet the above conditions and would like to volunteer at our office in Amsterdam, the Netherlands you need to send an email to , with a copy of your resume, letting us know which department you would like to volunteer for and when you would be available.

If you don't live in the Netherlands and would like to volunteer, you need to contact your local Greenpeace Office and enquire there as to what opportunities that office may have for you. You can find contact information for all of our offices world-wide at:

You can also take action with us by signing up as a cyberactivist. We'll send you information about what you can do to help win campaigns for the environment.

Please also check our Jobs page to see if you are interested in any of the available paid positions.
