Greenpeace International first came to Czechoslovakia in the early ‘90s. Its initial activities focused on bringing awareness to toxic pollution and energy. Today the group remains active in urging both the European Union and local governments to adopt sustainable policies.

Spokespeople from Greenpeace now say that there has been an increased interest in opportunities for English speakers to get involved with the group’s activities – and the group is also looking to reach the international community in Czechia.


In response, Greenpeace’s Czech chapter has announced that it is actively seeking English-speaking volunteers who share their passion for defending the natural world. The group will host an upcoming informational meetup in Prague to explain its activities and how potential volunteers can get involved.

“Greenpeace is about ordinary people doing extraordinary things to champion a greener and fairer future for us all.”

What do Greenpeace volunteers do?

Greenpeace volunteers meet regularly to plan activities and organize upcoming events in their local area. They typically organize public events that shine a light on Greenpeace campaigns. Those events can range from organizing a film screening, a debate, or an exhibit or run a stall at a local festival.

Volunteers contribute to public-facing activities as well as work behind the scenes. They have the opportunity to get involved in every aspect of Greenpeace campaigns from research to organizing demonstrations or spreading awareness on social media.


Who can volunteer?

Volunteers come from all walks of life: students, parents, working or retired professionals working in creative, health, business, and a number of other sectors. A volunteer's knowledge of environmental issues isn't taken into consideration – anyone and everyone is welcome to volunteer.

How to sign up

If you are interested in volunteering or just want to find out more about Greenpeace’s activities in the Czech Republic, the first Greenpeace meetup for English speakers will take place on Feb. 22 at the Greenpeace office, located in the Karlín neighborhood.

Participants can learn about the campaigns they are working on and how they can get involved in them. See the Facebook event for additional information.


For those who can’t attend the initial meetup, you can still apply as a volunteer by filling out this form. Someone from Greenpeace will contact you to let you know when the next meetup for English speakers will take place. 

Organizers say that volunteering isn’t just an important step toward furthering Greenpeace's message of environmental activism, it’s also a great way to get to know like-minded expats while helping defend the planet.
