Description:

For over 40 years Greenpeace has been inspiring and mobilizing people all over the world to work towards a more green and peaceful planet. We are a leading independent environmental organization that utilizes action, cutting-edge research and creative communications to protect the Earth. We expose global environmental problems and promote the solutions that are essential to a green and peaceful future. We investigate, document and expose environmental destruction in a peaceful manner and promote open, informed debate about society's environmental choices. To ensure our independence we do not accept donations from corporations or governments.

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

Greenpeace is acts to change attitudes and behavior, to protect and conserve the environment and to promote peace by:

•       Catalyzing an energy revolution to address the number one threat facing our planet: climate change.

•       Defending our oceans by challenging wasteful and destructive fishing, and creating a global network of marine reserves.

•       Protecting the world's ancient forests and the animals, plants and people that depend on them.

•       Creating a toxic free future with safer alternatives to hazardous chemicals in today's products and manufacturing.

•       Campaigning for sustainable agriculture by rejecting genetically engineered organisms, protecting biodiversity and encouraging socially responsible farming.

Greenpeace is present in 40 countries across Europe, the Americas, Asia, Africa and the Pacific.

To maintain our independence, Greenpeace does not accept donations from governments or corporations but relies on contributions from individual supporters and foundation grants.

Greenpeace Mediterranean:

Greenpeace Mediterranean, established as a foundation in Malta in 1995, has been actively campaigning in Turkey, Israel, Lebanon, Jordan and Egypt on issues such as climate change and renewable energy; nuclear power; GMOs and sustainable agriculture; marine resources and pollution of the oceans. With currently over 60 staff in Turkey and 25 more in Israel and several Arab countries in the region, Greenpeace Mediterranean (GP Med) has ambitious growth plans aiming to double its available resources by 2016. The composition of its offices in a volatile Region of high geopolitical attention, with ongoing political unrest and social change; the ambitious plans especially for Turkey, and its young, enthusiastic and innovative staff make Greenpeace-Mediterranean a unique office in the global Greenpeace community, and an important contributor to the international Greenpeace programme.
