National Greenpeace Day 2017

Reason to celebrate: September 15, 2017 is National Greenpeace Day.

Greenpeace Day

On 15th September we celebrate Greenpeace Day, so it is now time to produce your inner activist and obtain enthusiastic about the atmosphere. The now worldwide famous campaign organisation for environmental issues was initially founded by several 17 activists in Vancouver protesting against off shoreline nuclear testing in Alaska about this date in 1971.Since that time, Greenpeace has accomplished a good amount of victories over eco-crimes, in addition to making a massive contribution to raising understanding of environment issues around the world. They constantly shoot for their vision of the society which recognises our planet being an essential existence support system whose assets aren't infinite and should be protected and looked after. Each campaign vary from raising understanding of the diminishing ice from the Arctic to safeguarding the oceans and tropical rain forests to working towards nuclear disarmament.To determine the contribution produced by the organisation which arrived on the scene of these humble roots yet now boasts 2.9 million people, Mayor Gregor Robertson of Vancouver has pronounced September 15th Greenpeace Day. In Vancouver, festivities incorporate a free family-friendly outside festival, tree planting and training courses on activism.Be inspired by Greenpeace today: sign applications and encourage others to complete exactly the same, be eco-friendly in your home and on an outing by switching off unnecessary bulbs and tossing that empty wrapper in the pub within the bin. Think bigger and consider volunteering and helping raise awareness for Greenpeace issues. Finally let Greenpeace Day behave as a indication that because the anthropologist Margaret Mead once place it: ‘Never doubt that the … number of committed people can alter the planet. Indeed, it's the only factor that ever has’.
