The deadline to sign up for Action Camp 2016 is February 4 — get your application in before it's too late.
What are you doing April 2 to 6? Why not learn how to creatively and peacefully protest while connecting with activists from all over the country?
Climbing, creative arts, blockades, and action scouting are just some of the offerings at Greenpeace’s non-violent direct action camp this year in the Tampa, Florida area.
Action camp starts with folks from all walks of life coming together, honoring diversity, and working across difference. We come together to learn and share skills in support of the growing movements, campaigns, and communities working toward a common goal — a just and equitable existence for all.
Greenpeace is delighted to participate, and is working hard to make it a safe and inclusive space for all. However, we’re merely facilitating. We need you to make it happen. This is your camp, after all. Personally, I love climbing — as a way to interact with our world and as a tool for protest. I’ve shared and experienced the fear, empowerment, and growth that is found at height. I’ve made life long friends in places that I never expected while exposing the high costs of human impacts on our planet. The Black Hills of South Dakota and Pechora Sea off the coast of Russia are two that I remember vividly.
