"A trip for life and for peace" that’s how Irving Stowe, one of the co-founders of Greenpeace, described the plan to sail a boat to the Arctic Ocean to stop the testing of a nuclear bomb. Irving didn’t know it then, but the Greenpeace trip would last for decades and would change the world.
Whether challenging food supply chains, stopping forest destruction, phasing out use of toxic chemicals, calling for a ban on radioactive waste dumping at sea, or the end of commercial whaling, the Antarctic Treaty, or the pioneering of a greener fridge technology, Greenpeace has been the force for change.
Today Greenpeace has a presence in over 40 countries with 27 national and regional offices. Greenpeace International office, in Amsterdam, co-ordinates worldwide campaigns, strategy and monitors the development and performance of all national and regional offices. Greenpeace's work is based on a number of key principles; bearing witness, non-violence, independence and promotion of solutions. These principles are reflected in all our campaigns, and they guide whatever we do, wherever we do it.
