GREENPEACE VOLUNTEER INDUCTION
Transcript of GREENPEACE VOLUNTEER INDUCTION
VOLUNTEERING AT GREENPEACE
About Volunteer Community
An independent, campaigning organization which uses non-violent, creative confrontation to expose global environmental problems, and to force the solutions which are essential to a green and peaceful future.
WHO ARE WE?
HOW DID GREENPEACE START?
In 1971, a small team of activists set sail from Vancouver, Canada in an old fishing boat.
Their mission was to "bear witness" to USA's underwater nuclear testing at Amchitka, Alaska.
Their attempted journey triggered a flurry of public attention towards the issue, even though the bomb was detonated.
Nuclear testing on Amchitka ended the same year and the island was declared a bird sanctuary.
