Greenpeace works for positive change through action and our nonviolent direct actions (NVDA) are vital to winning our campaigns. However we can only take action because ordinary individuals take a personal choice to act to help expose an environmental crime or stop environmental destruction and are willing to accept the consequences of their actions.


Greenpeace supporters help our campaigns in many different ways from political lobbying to public engagement and taking part in an action isn’t for everyone. We organise regular trainings to enable people to participate and help in this way. If you would like to attend such a training please submit your details below.
We expect that NVDA trained activists:

  • support Greenpeace and have an understanding of the issues we work on

  • are committed to nonviolence

  • are available to participate in actions (i.e. have some flexibility as regards work commitments)

  • realise that participation in actions involves accepting some personal risks

If you cannot take the risks involved or you cannot take time off during the week, then we still need your help but please get involved in other ways.

You cannot participate in Greenpeace nonviolent direct actions until you are over 18.
