The Greenpeace USA Online Strategy team is a group of online experts who thrive on creative thinking, grounded in what the data is telling us. We continue to develop highly specialized skills in the most important areas of online communications -- web design, blogging, social media, mobile, email fundraising and activism, search engine optimization and online to offline organizing.

Most importantly we have fun and take pride in thinking big, failing big and winning big.

While building expertise in the most cutting edge online organizing strategies and tactics the Online Strategy intern will help Greenpeace launch a renewable energy revolution to combat global warming, stop the destruction of ancient forests, hold corporations accountable and yes, save the whales!

In addition to helping the team promote Greenpeace campaign pushes to our online supporters, the Online Strategy Intern is encouraged to take on projects of their own. Creativity and new ideas are valued greatly on our team.

Last semester’s intern organized and created an interactive historical timeline of the environmental movement:



  • Support the Online Strategy team in executing Greenpeace campaign pushes

  • Create content to post to social network platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, YouTube, Instagram, and blogs to promote and publicize priority Greenpeace campaigns

  • Recruit and engage online and on-the-ground activists in key regions



  • Familiarity with blogging and environmental issues

  • Experience using online social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube

  • Excellent written and verbal communications skills

  • Strong online research skills

  • Although not necessary, basic HTML experience would be ideal
