Direct Dialogue CampaignIt is a known fact that Greenpeace depends on donations from individuals to keep our vital campaigns going. We are different from most environmental organizations because soliciting donations from either government or corporations is definitely a no-no in order to maintain our fierce independence.

So in case you’re not yet a Greenpeace supporter and you see that this is the time for you to make a difference, well go ahead and check out the venues posted below:

April 15-17: Glorietta 5, Atrium (Ayala Foundation Earth Day event)
What to expect:
-There’s a Climate Clinic where you can have a carbon check up done by our direct dialogue campaigners and see if you’re almost carbon-free or be diagnosed as a carbon addict.
-After taking the carbon check-up, you can proceed to really signing up as a full-fledged Greenpeace supporter with the help of our friendly direct dialogue campaigners.

April 18-19: Bonifacio High Street (Ayala Foundation/Bonifacio Estate Services Corporation Earth Day Event)
What to expect:
-Climate Clinic and Direct Dialogue Booth;
-A short program on April 18 at 10am will be held to formally launch the event.

April 20-22: Mall Atriums of Ever Gotesco Ortigas & Ever Commonwealth
What to expect:
-Water Patrol Photo exhibit, Climate Clinic,  and Direct Dialogue booth

Go GreenApril 20-24: SM Mega Mall Activity Area (Magna Vision Go Green Event)

-Do-It-Yourself Campaign kit will also be up for grabs if you want to personally spread the word.
-There will also be a video playback of Greenpeace videos during the 4-day event

April 22: Aidea Philippines, Inc., Makati

-Climate Clinic

Also, we’re trying to reach more people to get  on board. Check out the following venues in Cebu!

What to expect:
-Direct Dialogue Booth

Given the dates above, we do hope that you could somehow include them on your schedule (however busy you may be) and spare a little time to take action by signing up as a supporter.  It’s time that we cease becoming wrapped up in our own myopic lives and see the big picture.

hello ariane,
yes 16 year olds can be a part of Greenpeace, however due to the nature of some of our work 16 year olds are not eligible to participate in direct actions that Greenpeace does. Best place to start is to signup as a cyber activist visit http://www, to learn more
