Our vision

We believe optimism is a form of courage. We believe that a billion acts of courage can spark a brighter tomorrow.

To that end we model courage, we champion courage, we share stories of courageous acts by our supporters and allies, we invite people out of their comfort zones to take courageous action with us, individually in their daily lives, and in community with others who share our commitment to a better world.

A green and peaceful future is our quest. The heroes of our story are all of us who believe that better world is not only within reach, but being built today.

We're an independent campaigning organisation, which uses non-violent, creative confrontation to expose environmental problems, and to force the solutions essential to a green and peaceful future.

See what we stand for

In 1971, the founders of Greenpeace set sail to a remote island in the Arctic. Their mission? To confront a nuclear bomb. It was a journey that would spark a global movement and make history.
