Greenpeace activists paint two gigantic cracks on the 32 year old nuclear reactor dome at Borssele, Netherlands. The Dutch government wants to keep the plant, one of the world's oldest, open beyond 2013, despite inherent safety and security risks.

Project work

Climate change is a priority issue for us here at Greenpeace.  Disruptions to ecosystems will likely harm everything from minke whales to coral reefs to polar bears. Whole forests will be lost, and hundreds of thousands of species will become extinct. Climate change will bring devastation to people and communities, especially some of the world's poorest.

Certainly, a big part of our job is bringing home to people everywherethe realities of climate change and the struggle against it.  To name names, protest corporations, shame governments - while helping make climate change solutions a reality.

Our expeditions document the impacts of climate change on people and ecosystems. Our professional negotiators, scientists and policy expertsattend world climate conferences and persuade decision makers to take action.  Our volunteers and cyberactivists keep up the pressure on lawmakers and corporations.  Our activists put their safety and freedom on the line for even the smallest chance to change the world.

Luckily enough, Greenpeace is itself only part of a much larger movement towards positive energy policy.  We are fortunate to work with and beside many other environmental organisations, as well as many companies, governments and individuals who share our dedication, optimism and belief that there is a solution for every problem.

If you would like to be a part of this global movement, and like how wework, please choose to volunteer, sign up as a cyberactivst, and/orsupport us financially. For more ways to help see the Take Action page.
