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.
