(If you would like to participate in Greenpeace actions this training is compulsory.)This weekend long training is an intensive program that includes an introduction to Greenpeace and non-violent direct action, includes a full legal briefing, media training, direct action simulation and much more.
The training will begin Friday at around 5:00pm and finish around Sunday at 5:30pm. The location will be announced shortly. There is a selection process and although we hope to accommodate as many people as possible not everyone will be invited to participate in the training.
