Greenpeace Speakers

Greenpeace Speakers are trained volunteers who deliver inspiring talks across the country about the challenges of protecting our planet and what people can do to help.

Share

Greenpeace Speakers are passionate about building a green and peaceful world. They’re only too happy to share that passion and talk about the solutions to our environmental problems.

Whether discussing how we can get climate change under control or protect rainforests and oceans, Greenpeace Speakers can provide engaging insights into the environmental challenges we face. They can also talk about Greenpeace’s history and the work we do. 

Invite a Greenpeace Speaker

Greenpeace Speakers during COVID-19: Are you looking for an interesting way to keep your pupils and students, group or colleagues engaged during this challenging time? Has the chance to slow down and reflect given you more time to think about the big environmental questions? Or maybe you’re thinking about how you can still make a difference and impact without leaving home. 

Greenpeace Speakers are available to give online talks and webinars across the UK. Inviting a speaker to talk to your colleagues, class or group is a great way to start conversations about our place in the natural world.

As Greenpeace Speakers would normally visit a group in person, they are divided into regions. You may still wish to select a Speaker from your local area, particularly if you would like the Speaker to visit in person in the future. However, please feel free to select a Speaker from elsewhere if you would prefer.

Unsure which Greenpeace Speaker is right for you? Contact us at getactive.uk@greenpeace.org and we will help you find a good match.

We are always excited to hear from individuals who are interested in becoming Greenpeace Speakers, and want to share their passion and enthusiasm with others.

In 2020 we will focus our recruitment on growing the number of young Speakers, aged 18-25, in our network. In particular, we are keen to hear from individuals in this age range from ethnic minorities and other underrepresented groups. 

We hope to run a training day for new recruits later in the year. Please email getactive.uk@greenpeace.org to register your interest in becoming a Greenpeace Speaker and we will contact you as soon as we have more information.
