During the Greenpeace Semester, participants have the opportunity to apply the skills they have learned in the classroom to the Campaign Trip. Students spend time in class learning more about the campaign on which they will work and planning for the trip to make it successful.
The campaign trip is an opportunity for participants to see it's really like to organize people to make a difference for the environment. Participants travel for one week in the summer and two weeks in the spring and fall to support a current Greenpeace campaign and work with people in different communities.
The skills learned and practiced during the Campaign Trip include:
- public speaking
- recruiting and training volunteers
- creative issue communication (photo, video, social media)
- strategic event planning
The destination varies each Semester, depending on the priority work and where the program is most needed. If you have any questions about the Greenpeace Semester campaign trip,
