1. Basic Policy

Greenpeace Southeast Asia (GPSEA) believes that public support is key to the success of our mission to save the environment. GPSEA believes that it is important to get more people directly involved in our work.

These are guidelines that reflect GPSEA’s philosophy on volunteer involvement; institutionalize the rights and responsibilities of volunteers to GPSEA, and set the baseline for day to day decision – making and operations for the management and coordination of volunteers.
