Best Greenpeace Videos 2020
December 30, 2020
2020 was a challenging year, but we move forward with a new understanding of our connectedness, and the importance of taking care of our shared home and each other.
As we approach the end of a very challenging year, we look back on our top videos of the year.
Fire Drill Fridays Go Virtual!
After leading weekly demonstrations on Capitol Hill to demand action on climate in 2019, Jane Fonda’s Fire Drill Friday rallies continued in 2020. Due to COVID-19, the usual in-person Fire Drill Friday rallies turned into weekly virtual conversations with movement leaders, experts, Indigenous leaders, and community members. We have had a lot of wonderful guests on Fire Drill Friday, including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Mary Trump, and Ben & Jerry. Take a look back on the most memorable moments from our virtual rallies!
One day we woke up and the world had changed. In a matter of weeks the COVID-19 crisis has truly changed our lives. But, despite the darkness, we see hope, a chance at a new kind of world. The immense solidarity we’ve seen as communities come together has underscored the power of collective action. We can continue to advance our work for a country that provides real security and a healthy environment for everyone in this moment.
Launch of Planeta G
Did you know that according to a recent Yale study, over 70% of Latinx people in the United States are concerned about the environment? Latinx people play an integral part in the environmental movement, and it’s about time their experiences are brought to the forefront.
In June, we launched Planeta G, a bi-weekly web series about the intersection between the environmental movement and the Latinx identity. Together, hosts Crystal Mojica and Valentina Stackl, unpack the latest news, tweets, and memes of the moment, while centering Latinx activists, friends, and families. And if you need last minute sustainable gift-wrapping tips, check out our episode with Eco Activist, Valeria Hinojosa.
The Future We Fight For
Frailty Myths and Greenpeace combined for a powerful three-part series where we build a vision for a better world and discuss how it relates to issues of race, class, and climate change, and practice how we can be in the beautiful messiness of holding BOTH our individual vision and the collective vision for a more just future. You can watch the entire series now.
How Art Changes the World
Greenpeace reached out to frontline artists in our communities to create works of art that represent the power of solidarity, community resistance, and community organizing in moments of crisis. The goal: to show everyone invested in the fight for social and environmental justice that they’re not alone in demanding a good life and health for all. See How Art Changes the World with artists Cece Carpio, Jaque Fragua, and J. Slim.
A healthy democracy is our best tool for protecting the planet. By electing climate champions to Congress and the White House, we can still prevent the worst impacts of the climate crisis and preserve the planet for communities already hit the hardest by climate-fueled disasters. U.S. voters achieved the highest turnout in modern history, and it’s clear the majority chose a future where we all can thrive.
Reject Ernie Moniz
The people have spoken. We have given President-Elect Joe Biden a mandate to take bold action on climate. Greenpeace urges Biden and his transition team to publicly commit to barring fossil fuel lobbyists, executives, or representatives to roles in the administration.
