Forest planting volunteer camp

The help and the support of volunteers is very important for Greenpeace. In the near future we are planning to develop Greenpeace volunteer groups across Russia.

You are a kind, inquisitive and active person. You've got a lot of ideas about how to improve the environment. You like to communicate with people, and you have a great desire to create beauty. You are looking for a way to use your knowledge and talents…- It's high time to become Greenpeace volunteer.

Volunteers (french "volontaire"-a volunteer) are active people who give their time to help the Greenpeace organization in any way, without monetary compensation.

The work of Greenpeace would be impossible without volunteers; they are our main source of power and support. Their free work is an invaluable contribution to Greenpeace.

If you are living in Moscow or St. Petersburg, you can become a permanent member of our volunteer group. In other cities you can participate in Greenpeace activity through the internet.

  Main areas of volunteer activity:

- Ecological inspections (the exposure of illegal wood felling, illegal dumping of garbage, etc.)

- Participating in actions (planting trees, taking away garbage, harvesting acorns, etc.)

- Help in the office (gathering and systematization of information, translation of texts into foreign languages, help in postal delivery, project design, etc.)

- Gathering signatures for appeals to the authorities.

- Participating in informational and educational programs (conducting lessons in schools, organizing seminars, etc.)

You can find more detailed information about volunteer vacancies here.

For those types of activities where special skills are necessary, Greenpeace staff will conduct seminars.
