"Put your body where your mouth is" 50 years of Greenpeace
Show Notes

You cannot move for environmental activist groups in the world today. From hyperlocal save X park groups, to clean streets organisations, to the giants of Extinction Rebellion and Friends of the Earth. How are these different groups successful? How do you keep a group going to secure the future of the planet pressure groups need longevity?

This week on the show we are joined by Martin Porter (@dassnufkin) who spoke to us about OGs Greenpeace – which this month celebrates 50 years of environmental activism. Martin is a local group co-ordinator for Greenpeace based in Glossop. 

We get into the anti nuclear testing origins of Greenpeace, how the organisation is run, what's kept it going for so long and we examine its relationship with the other big environmental groups.
