Greenpeace is a global, independent campaigning organization that uses peaceful protest and creative communication to expose global environmental problems and promote solutions that are essential to a green and peaceful future. Greenpeace started as a group of thoughtful, committed citizens protesting nuclear testing back in 1971, and we have grown to an international organization with offices in more than 50 countries and 2.8 million members worldwide. Over the past 45 years, our committed activists and supporters have come together to ban commercial whaling, convince the world’s leaders to stop nuclear testing, protect Antarctica, and so much more!
