Local Groups are made up of self-organizing volunteers who are driving change in their community and beyond. These groups work semi-autonomously to campaign on local issues or support Greenpeace campaigns nationally and internationally with local events.
They hold regular group meetings, organize outreach events, have trainings and launch campaigns across Canada. Whether you want to start a new group or join an existing group – you’ll receive support and resources from Greenpeace to become a leader in your community. This is a perfect opportunity for a supporter who wants to take their local activism to the next level and work with Greenpeace.
Join a Local Group in your community by visiting their Greenwire (our online organizing tool) or Facebook pages and contacting the group members or better yet, attending their next meeting or event.
This takes a lot of work and dedication. Are you well organized and good at motivating other people? Do you enjoy organizing events and projects? Do you want to develop your leadership capacity? Are you passionate about Greenpeace campaigns and values? Can you commit to at least a year of building, organizing and leading a group as a volunteer?
