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.
The Distributed Organizing Team is launching the next phase of our organizing program -- and we are looking for a Distributed Organizer to help us lift it off the ground! Together, we’ll build a network of Greenpeace Action Pods -- small teams of volunteers that take action locally to move us towards an end of the fossil fuel era. We know that volunteers are hungry to do more for our climate -- our role is to give them the skills they need to organize and act in their own communities!
