Transcript of Globalization
The main idea is to protect the Arctic waters from oil drilling, specially from Shell company, and industrial fishing, the point is to demand world leaders declare a global sanctuary around the North Pole. Give Rainforests a Break The development and coordination of all global strategies is the task of Greenpeace International, it co-ordinates worldwide campaigns and monitors the development and performance of national and regional Greenpeace offices. Greenpeace is present in 40 countries across Europe, the Americas, Asia, Africa and the Pacific. The organization is probably best known for its nonviolent direct action campaigns. These controversial campaigns, are designed to create memorable images and engage public interest. Greenpeace is an independent global campaigning organization that acts to change attitudes and behavior to protect and conserve the environment and to promote peace by: It sets out to protect and preserve our oceans now and for the future by setting aside swathes of the global oceans from exploitation and controllable human pressure, allowing these areas the respite they so desperately need for recovery and renewal.
Building on a protection and recovery system established to manage land based over-exploitation, Marine Reserves are the ocean equivalent of national parks. We campaign for forest protection because, without healthy, thriving forests, planet Earth cannot sustain life. As much as eighty per cent of the world's forests have been degraded or destroyed. Greenpeace is campaigning for zero deforestation by 2020 to protect what is left of these extraordinary ecosystems.
Protecting forests is one of the quickest and most effective ways to prevent climate change, protect biodiversity and defend the rights of forest communities. They have campaigned against both nuclear weapons and nuclear power. Bearing witness in test zones, supplying scientific data and measurements on human and environmental impacts and by conducting direct non-violent actions to call attention to the problem. By tackling the causes of conflict and calling for the elimination of all nuclear weapons. Developing safer alternatives to hazardous chemicals in today's products and manufacturing. Toxic chemicals in our environment threaten our rivers and lakes, our air, land, and oceans, and ultimately ourselves and our future. By rejecting genetically engineered organisms, protecting biodiversity and encouraging socially responsible farming. Greenpeace has contributed towards globalization in the sense that it has encouraged people to perceive the world as place; it stresses the idea that actions taken in a community have global consequences, and uses this premise to inform its strategies and motivate its members.
Greenpeace acts as a response to globalization by highlighting and addressing these effects; thus, along with many other international non-governmental organizations, Greenpeace seeks to shape the globalizing process of which it is a part. Greenpeace promotes the autonomy of individuals on a global scale; it encourages individuals to conceptualize themselves as global citizens whose rights and responsibilities extend beyond the borders of the community or nation-state, and to bring about global change through local interactions with corporations, governments, and the general public.
