Greenpeace’s mission is to protect our oceans, our forests, our air and our futures. We use several tactics to accomplish this including peaceful action to raise awareness about environmental injustice and solutions. Blockades, ship tours and banner hangings are a few of the ways we raise awareness and pressure those in power to make the sustainable decisions. Although our direct actions are never the first step in a campaign, we believe the environment needs action, and we are willing to stand up for what we believe in and demand change.
On March 18-23, Greenpeace will be gathering together with activists from across the country to hold a week-long direct action training. This camp will give motivated activists the opportunity to build skills in a variety of non-violent direct action techniques, including action climbing, boat driving and blockades. Participants will also learn about the history and philosophy of non-violence and discuss Greenpeace campaigns during breakout sessions with the campaigners themselves.
