2 - What do active supporters do?

Greenpeace regularly invites active supporters to:

  • Talk to people on the high street, at local fairs and festivals, asking them to support a specific element of Greenpeace’s work.
  • Write letters and emails to politicians, companies and decision makers, and encourage others to do the same.
  • Train as political lobbyists and meet decision makers face to face.
  • Visit shops and supermarkets to demonstrate and encourage consumer support for Greenpeace’s work.
  • Help at big festivals such as Glastonbury or Latitude.
  • Train for non violent direct action (NVDA) and be ready to take NVDA for Greenpeace.
  • Organise local community fundraising events.

Please watch this video to see why some active supporters got involved.
