It’s that time of the year again, where we take a moment to step back and have a look at everything that was accomplished in the past 12 months.
2019 was an iconic year where millions mobilised on the streets all around the world to fight for our planet. Corporations and governments were called out for their unwillingness to do their part and do more to save our home. But it was also a devastating year, as we saw ruthless extreme weather events – propelled by climate change – ravaging so many countries. But in the end, it was a landmark year of people power. Despite the adversities, people came and will continue to, come together to continue driving the movement towards a greener, more sustainable, and hopeful future.
On that note, check out a few of the best moments Greenpeace captured in 2019.

hello. if live stock , and fishing are the most important contributors for pollution , gas emitions, deforestation, and estermination of many animal spices, why you are not more radical in urging the people to go vegan? why are you so soft on this matter?
Hello Ana, we have been campaigning around meat consumption and tacking this issue from several different angles for several years now. We believe that reducing meat and dairy consumption or adopting a 100% plant-based diet are crucial to fight the climate crisis, but we believe the burden shouldn't only fall on people. We also need systemic change and to challenge those in power in order to have a just transition from factory farming to an ecological agriculture that can provide affordable food that is not only healthy for us but also for the planet.
I want to say a huge 'thank you' to everyone who has taken action regarding the environmental emergency this year! Together we can raise awareness and successfully demand action regarding the environmental emergency! Let's continue it in the new decade!
half of the world is not doing anything to change!
