After moving to London in October 2017, I started campaigning with a local Greenpeace group. Since then, I have been involved with the ocean plastics and the Save the Antarctic campaign throughout my weekends.

I have always been interested in environmental issues and after gaining my Physics degree, I travelled to the Arctic on multiple occasions to conduct sea-ice and glaciology research investigating the effects of global warming.

I joined Greenpeace to make a change and encourage the public to become more involved in environmental issues and help them in understanding the steps they can take to protect the natural world.

I remember hearing in school (long ago) about rainforests being chopped down, and thinking surely someone would do something about it. It honestly didn’t occur to me that that person might be me. Yet here I am, a tiny cog in the bigger picture, doing what I can in my spare time.

That spare time is quite limited as I am busy (I’m a musician) but baby steps add up. Together with the Greenpeace family we’ve made many small changes which accumulate into big change. When we work together we become powerful. We need every person – no matter who – to do what they can.

I first became properly engaged in environmental concerns when I saw Al Gore’s film An Inconvenient Truth in 2006. I joined my local Greenpeace group in 2013 and have co-run the Shoreditch group since 2015. We have a fantastic group of volunteers who, as part of Greenpeace, are making a difference.

I’ve been involved in all kinds of campaigns from London air pollution to John West tuna. My day job is as a self-employed graphic designer.

As a Greenspeaker, I hope to spread the word about environmental issues and the good work Greenpeace does.

I have known about and been inspired by Greenpeace’s work for as long as I can remember! Driven by environmental destruction I saw through the media, I got involved in 2002 as an active supporter in my local group.

I am a filmmaker in my day job, working on broadcast, arts and educational films. In my spare time, I co-run the Camden Greenpeace group.

I am a confident communicator and love talking to people of all ages and backgrounds.

I believe education is the most powerful tool we have to change the world for the better, and as a Greenspeaker, I want to inspire others to be that change!

Hello, I’m Ray. My background is in accountancy and IT – previously I worked for a Big 4 accountancy firm. I’m now self-employed, working part-time in the cultural sector, and also volunteer in areas that I care about – equality, sport, architecture, and of course the environment.

I’ve been involved with Greenpeace for a number of years initially in Australia and now in the UK. I became a Greenspeaker to help inform organisations and people about the issues facing our planet and what they can do to help.

I got involved with Greenpeace 25 years ago when the words Global Warming and Climate Change appeared. Having four children under 10, I thought I should find out more. Greenpeace provided information and I joined the volunteer network.

I worked as a local journalist. I helped start several South London groups and now run Greenpeace Bromley. I have made many close friends and enjoyed being a Greenpeace orang-utan, taking part in festivals and campaigning on street stalls.

I feel it is important to link with the community to show them how Greenpeace peaceful campaigns have changed the world for the better.
