Greenpeace Africa

Cause Profile

Greenpeace exists because this fragile Earth deserves a voice. It needs solutions. It needs change. It needs action.

It needs you!

We have three main campaigns in Africa: tackling climate change,  protecting our Oceans from overfishing, and saving the rainforests of the Congo Basin.

Our principles and core values are reflected in all our environmental campaign work, worldwide. These are:

  • We 'bear witness' to environmental destruction in a peaceful, non-violent manner;
  • We use non-violent confrontation to raise the level and quality of public debate;
  • In exposing threats to the environment and finding solutions we have no permanent allies or adversaries;
  • We ensure our financial independence from political or commercial interests;
  • We seek solutions for, and promote open, informed debate about society's environmental choices.

See all of our victories.
