Our vision

Our vision is an Africa where people live in harmony with nature in a peaceful state of environmental and social justice. Greenpeace has always been more than an organisation. We have been, and are today, a movement. A diverse, multinational, multicultural movement of ordinary individuals determined to bring about extraordinary changes necessary to realise a greener, more peaceful future.

Our commitment to peace
Greenpeace is a global environmental organisation that is politically and financially independent from business, political parties and governments. In line with the Greenpeace global policy on peace, Greenpeace Africa does not take sides in conflicts and wars on the African continent. We campaign for peace and always stand for non-violence and the defence of human rights.
