Greenpeace Day

Greenpeace Day is an annual holiday dedicated to Greenpeace. Environmental problems still remain in the modern world. This day is a great opportunity to show your initiative and help the environment. It is celebrated annually on September 15th.

History

The contribution of Greenpeace is difficult to overestimate. The history of the world-famous organization began on September 15, 1971, when nuclear tests were conducted in Alaska at sea. Then the initiative group united 17 activists from Vancouver who opposed the tests. On the sea route in protest from Vancouver to Alaska, a ship was sent, which was called “Greenpeace”. As a result, the government had to cancel nuclear testing, which was the first small victory for an environmental organization.

A lot of time has passed since then. Greenpeace is a successful company with offices in many countries around the world. Every year, events and meetings are held that are aimed at solving important environmental problems. The organization actively promotes the idea of ​​caring for the planet, raising awareness of environmental issues in the world. Greenpeace plays an important role not only in protecting the environment, but also in countering the proliferation and use of nuclear weapons.

To emphasize the great importance of the organization, Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson decided to declare September 15 as Greenpeace Day.
