Governance Co-ordinator
I enjoy working for Greenpeace because I am working together with people who are passionate about what they are doing and we are all working towards a common goal. To me it feels more tangible, like I am not alone.  I really enjoy working with so many people from around the world and there is always something new to read, learn and discuss.  On a small scale, I like to think I am making a difference.
