How to Create a Profile

Step 1:

Log in to Greenpeace Greenwire. Then, go to your profile page and click the "Edit Profile" tab in the top right corner of the My Profile box.

Step 2:

Click on “Picture and About Me.” Choose a profile picture and write a bio about yourself. Tell us why you are motivated to be an environmental activist!

Pro tip: Be sure to upload a picture of you for your profile picture. Remember that Greenwire is all about making connections to take action together offline. You want a picture that will allow people to recognize you and approach you in the real world!

Pro tip: In your About Me, share what made you interested in volunteering with Greenpeace and what got you involved in the environmental movement for your community. This will help other Greenwire volunteers identify and connect with you. You can also share some fun and interesting facts about yourself to help folks get a better sense of who you are as a person!


Don't forget to fill out the rest of your information (school, professions, employer, etc.) at the bottom of the page! This will help others get a sense of your background. 


Step 3:

Click on "Social Media" to link your social media pages to your Greenwire! This will give folks on Greenwire another way to connect with you. Simply copy the URL from the profile page of your Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. and paste it on the designated row. 

Step 4:

Expand “Skills” to let everyone know what you're good at. This will help other users find you based on your unique skill set! 

Pro tip: Every bit of experience counts! So, make sure you check off as many boxes as applicable -- you never know when you will be called on for your special skill set! Don't forget to add skills that are not listed with the "Other" box.

Step 5:

Click on "Edit Account Setting" in the Acount Settings box (you can also access this on your profile page). Click on “Privacy Preferences.” Here you can decide what information on your profile you want to make visible to other Greenwire users, and what information you want to keep private. 

Step 6:

Check out “Emails and notification settings” to choose which email notifications you would like to receive from Greenwire.

Here you can choose how often you'd like to receive emails: immediately, hourly, daily or weekly. You can also disable notifications from Greenwire all together.

Pro tip: We recommend getting email notifications from Greenwire at least daily. That way you can keep up with everything going on in your groups and see if people have connected with you!

Step 7: Save your changes. (Click "Save" at the bottom of the page.)


Now, Go Explore Your Profile!

Click on any of your skills to see if there are groups that are tagged with your same skills.

Just like on your other social medias, post a "shout" on your profile to let others see what you’re up to when they visit your profile. This is similar to writing on someone's Facebook wall. 

When you visit your friends' profiles, you can also leave "shouts" on their pages!
