Our vision

We believe optimism is a form of courage. We believe that a billion acts of courage can spark a brighter tomorrow.

To that end we model courage, we champion courage, we share stories of courageous acts by our supporters and allies, we invite people out of their comfort zones to take courageous action with us, individually in their daily lives, and in community with others who share our commitment to a better world.

A green and peaceful future is our quest. The heroes of our story are all of us who believe that better world is not only within reach, but being built today.

Greenpeace uses non-violent creative action to pave the way towards a greener, more peaceful world, and to confront the systems that threaten our environment.

See what we stand for

In 1971, our founders set sail to an island in the Arctic. Their mission? To stop a nuclear bomb. It was a journey that would spark a movement and make history.

With 26 independent national/regional organisations, we work directly with communities on the frontlines as they protect the environments they call home.
