Dan Cannon- Student Network Coordinator
Dan is the Greenpeace Student Network Coordinator, based in Washington D.C. He oversees the Student Network Board and assists Greenpeace Campus Coordinators in running the Quit Coal campaign.
Dan first discovered grassroots power after attending Power Shift 2007, following the conference he and his friends were inspired to start a campaign that worked to successfully pass a Green Fund in which $80,000 is raised for sustainability projects on campus annually. After college, Dan went on to graduate from Green Corps: The Field School for Environmental Organizing. During his Green Corps year he worked on the Power Vote 2008 campaign to empower over 7,000 youth voters in Texas to go to the polls with clean energy in mind, he also worked to pressure two Chicago suburb school districts to stop purchasing rBGH milk. Before coming to Greenpeace, Dan worked with the Southern Energy Network to build a powerful youth state network that focuses on taking action around clean energy and climate issues.
Dan studied Geography with a tract in Environmental Studies at Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania. When not working with his peers to take action you can find Dan in the woods backpacking, or slalom water-skiing on Lake Erie with his family.
