I joined Greenpeace in 2017 after watching a short film about plastics, it really affected the way I felt about the environment and I felt motivated to become active in my community.

I run Hartlepools Greenpeace group, and have recently trained as a Greenspeaker as I hope to help people understand what is happening and demonstrate practical steps that everyone can take as well as creating awareness of what a wonderful organisation Greenpeace is.

I’m particularly passionate about plastics, oceans, climate change. I am a full time dog walker running my own company, which keeps me super busy, as well as my two children and my own three dogs.

Based in: Hartlepool
Topics of interest: Plastics, oceans, climate change

I became active in Greenpeace in 2011 after seeing a film celebrating 40 years of Greenpeace – it changed me from being a passive supporter to an active volunteer, and I’ve never looked back!

I co-run the Newcastle group as well as volunteering as a Greenspeaker. I’ve worked as a teacher in special needs schools and am now completing my training to become a psychotherapeutic counsellor and give more time to my environmental and political activism.

By sharing the work and values of Greenpeace I hope to educate and inspire people to do what they can to protect our planet.

I was lucky enough to spend my childhood exploring the beautiful woods, valleys and hills of Northumberland. This sparked a lifelong love of nature and the desire to protect it.

Since university I spent a number of years living in Chile and in Portugal where I ran an adventure tourism company to make the most of the sunshine and scenery. Now back home I work as a researcher for the public sector and charities, helping organisations reach their audience and in my free time I love running and walking in nature.

As an individual, faced with all the world’s environmental problems it’s so easy to feel overwhelmed and powerless. However, Greenpeace has proven repeatedly that when we work together we can change the world one little bit at a time. That is why I am a member of Greenpeace and a Greenspeaker.
