Finding your way around
To get involved with Greenpeace – locally, in our office or online – see the What you can do pages , where you’ll be able take action online, join a local group, browse local group blogs and events, support us by donating or fundraising, sign up to keep in touch, give virtual gifts that support our campaigns, check our job vacancies and internships and much more.
You can find out more about Greenpeace, our vision, how we make change happen, our impacts, our history and our successes in the about section.
If you’re looking for information on climate change, forests, oceans, peace, nuclear power, toxics or agriculture, try our campaigns pages.
For the latest news on all of our campaigns, head over to the blog. As with most blogs, the entries are published in reverse chronological order, with the newest first. You can comment on what you read – actually, we’re relying on you to! While we don’t reply to every comment, we do read them all and take note. To comment, you can register and create your own public profile or you can make comments anonymously, however we do have a few house rules.
There are plenty of ways to keep in touch with Greenpeace. You can sign up to our newsletter, join us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, join a local group and more. Visit the get active section for full details. We also have dozens of RSS feeds allowing you to keep up-to-date with Greenpeace news without having to visit the website (RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication and, once you’ve got the hang of it, it really is simple).
Use the web for good!
All over the website, you’ll see ways that you can help to win campaigns – from writing letters and sharing news with your friends to designing logos and creating videos for us. Please take action where you can; the web is an essential campaigning tool and we rely on you to help us win campaigns (see the Nestle and Green My Apple campaigns for examples of how powerful it can be).
Sharing is particularly important; social networks allow us to get our campaigns out to a much wider audience than we would otherwise reach. Beneath every post, you’ll see a share tool that allows you to quickly share it by email, Facebook, Twitter and a host of other networks – please use liberally!
