Join the Social Media Hive
Join the social media hive community! We're going to generate a hive of social media support to fight for a green and peaceful future.
We recognize that social media is a really powerful tool when used effectively and we want to test what a group of super awesome people can do utilizing it. As we speak, people around the world are using social media channels to change our culture. Social media has built movements and become an integral part of any grassroots strategy.
Greenpeace is looking for 1,000 supporters (hive members), like you, who are willing to spend one hour per week building and leading an army of environmental trolls. Each month, the Social Media Hive will focus on a different tactic targeting a corporation, politician, or really any entity harming our planet. We want to ensure that we are igniting the fire on an environmental justice issue we’re focusing on. We’re going to meet up virtually to debrief the tactic, build community, and focus on fighting the next big issue.
Greenpeace and our supporters like you know how to pull off brand attacks— corporations know how much power we have to go after their public image, and it’s one of the ways people like you have brought about big victories for our planet.

Here are your next steps for joining the hive:
This will allow us to contact you about Hive related activities!
Twitter will be key to our work in the Social Media Hive – so if you don’t have an account yet, please create one today! We recommend using a profile image and including a brief bio so people know you’re not a bot.
To make it easier for you to volunteer one hour per week (or more), you’ll need to create an account on Tweetdeck. This tool will allow you to schedule out social media posts throughout the week, monitor the posts of other Social Media Hive members, and follow conversations that are relevant to our campaigns. Pro-tip: you can add columns in your Tweetdeck account to follow different conversations.
4. Announce yourself!
Post a Tweet to announce that you’ve joined the social media hive! You can copy or paste the one below, or write your own – just make sure to include #SocialMediaHive and @greenpeaceusa so that we know you’re here!
