Greenpeace is an international non-governmental organisation focussed on promoting environmentalism and peace.

Greenpeace was founded in 1971 by a small group who set sail off the coast of Alaska to try and stop a US nuclear weapons test. Today, Greenpeace continues to use direct action to bring public attention to a wide range of environmental issues such as deforestation, sustainable fishing and plastic pollution.
