The Rainbow Warrior will be connecting people and their stories, as well as surfacing stories yet untold, about the impacts of the climate crisis on our rights as human beings – our right to life, the right to health, the right to our culture and way-of-life, the right to livelihood, the right to an adequate standard of living for one’s self and family, the right to a balanced and healthful ecology.

Like the balangaw (a Filipino term for “rainbow”) these people’s stories represent the different facets of life that make it light. They are diverse and they herald Hope.

Join us and be part of the stories of hope and positive action as we become the generation that reclaims our right to a stable climate and safe environment.

A Brief History

The Rainbow Warrior has been the heart and soul of Greenpeace global campaigning for over 40 years. She’s been raided, rammed, shot at and bombed but the spirit of the Warrior is stronger than ever. After French Government agents bombed the first ship in Auckland harbour in 1985, she was laid to rest in Matauri Bay. Her replacement then picked up the baton and led from the front for over 21 years before being retired. Now the new Rainbow Warrior – the first purpose built Greenpeace ship - is leading the campaign for a cleaner, smarter, more innovative future.
