Our planet is in trouble.
Polluting industries and corporations are destroying our planet, resulting in increasing global temperatures, melting icecaps, leveled rainforests, and economic turmoil. All across the country, folks are waking up to the reality that if they do not act now to solve the environmental problems of today, the consequences are unthinkable. If we don’t act now, who will?
The Student Network is comprised of student leaders who tackle the most pressing environmental issues. We have organized and won inspiring campaigns, convincing corporations to change their ways and politicians to do the right thing. All thanks to our dedicated team of leaders, known as Campus Coordinators.
Campus Coordinators are located all across the United States, and even Canada! They work on priority Greenpeace Student Network campaigns at their schools and in their communities. They organize events like film screenings, phonebanks, and days of action. They hold meetings with elected officials, work with the media, recruit volunteers, and mobilize their campus to take action! They do all of this with top-notch trainings and expert support from our team of Student Network staff. Campus Coordinators develop their leadership skills and become an unstoppable force for green solutions on campus and in their community.
