It is one of the largest and most famous in the world, and has been protecting the environment for almost half a century (the foundation year of 1971).

Greenpeace Website
In the Greenpeace field of view, there are many global (and not only) problems: global warming, atmospheric pollution by hazardous substances, water pollution, radiation hazard, forest area reduction, extinction of animals, etc. The organization is taking various steps to address these and many other environmental issues.

Greenpeace Goals

The goal of the organization is to preserve nature and peace on Earth by changing the attitude of people towards natural riches. And that’s pretty reasonable. If people change their worldview, and instead of destroying nature, they will save it … This will change a lot.

And, it is worth noting that such an approach to the problem brings its fruits. The fact that the organizations managed to attract quite a lot of people to their activities testifies to this. And these ordinary people (volunteers) are the main force of Greenpeace. Just doing what they deem necessary, these people struggle for the salvation of nature day after day.

Principles of activity

Independence The organization accepts donations only from citizens and private charitable foundations. And refuses money from states, political parties and commercial structures.
Since the creation of Greenpeace, there are money for ordinary people, thus expressing their independence.

Nonviolence. Greenpeace seeks to achieve its goals in peaceful ways. Even in those cases when they are subjected to threats and aggression, they do not answer the same and try to solve the matter peacefully. This is the indisputable principle of organization.

Protest action. Greenpeace believes that protest actions can not only attract people’s attention to the environmental problem, but also persuade them to change their attitude towards nature. Protest action is a fairly effective way to fight the problem. But even holding such promotions, Greenpeace does not forget the principle of nonviolence, so they are peaceful.

Conclusion

Greenpeace is a modern, serious environmental organization. They gather information around the world, thanks to modern technology and supporters of the organization, as well as research in their research center. This allows you not only to see the problem, but also to establish cause-and-effect relationships, and find the best way to solve the problem.
