From Greenpeace Wiki

At the moment, this page lays out a timeline for specific things I'm focusing on at Greenpeace. If you want to get even further into the weeds, Checkout the Trello board I'm using with some cool cats from the Story Team.


In no particular order:


  • Purpose: Live the Framework and help others live it too.
  • Opportunity: By helping staff use openness as a tactic, we solicit broader feedback and work as a collective. Working openly and living the Framework serves as a model and ensures that Greenpeace's 10 year strategy results in diverse and inclusive collaboration that results in a green and peaceful future.
  • Process: Develop and share resources and workshops that lead to increased understanding of the Framework.


  • Links
  • Purpose: Make sure the new Greenpeace story is accessible, understandable and implementable for the global Greenpeace community.
  • Opportunity: Once the Greenpeace global staff and communities have internalized the Seven Shifts, they will be designing and co-creating campaigns with each other, alumni, supporters and the public at large.
  • Process:
    • 2.1 Expansion:
      • 2.1.1 Expand 7 Shifts and Me into more of a guide, in particular for the Hubs who are front line to the public.
      • 2.1.2 Interlace Diversity and Inclusion throughout the shifts and story (happy byproduct of community calls is the ability to prove diverse input and live inclusivity).
    • 2.2 Contagion:
      • 2.2.1 We are working together to publicize and publish learning materials for people to spread 7 shifts in their individual contexts. Workshop in a Box and my Participatory Learning Materials repo to be integrated and directed towards GP audience.
      • 2.2.2 The team will continue to field workshop / presentation requests...
      • 2.2.3 Fast and loose – 2016: Utilize networks, find tie ins and approach partnerships that walk this walk. Opportunities are always popping up, I use them as they come.
    • 2.3 Community:
      • 2.3.1 We can use the community call to spread the story + shifts, gather feedback and use community power to figure out what kind of practical guides are needed and how to surface them. Crowdsourcing things should create happy byproducts and by inviting folks to share their trials and successes, we’ll get to examples (which we can then publish and flip).
      • 2.3.2 Run the call, blog the results. Repeats biweekly
      • 2.3.3 Research community pockets
      • 2.3.4 Establish community infrastructures
      • 2.3.5 Maintain Community Health

  • Purpose: We've begun defining what a formal network might look like as we, in parallel, begin building the people power that will make it run. This work ties in heavily with the story work.
  • Opportunity: Alumni and staff can assist in all aspects of Greenpeace work and will become early adopters and models in the desired Greenpeace culture.
  • Process:
    • Use the GP Identity work stream to bring people together. At the GED day in September 2016, we proposed an internal campaign. This campaign will help us pull together our global community.
    • Next step is to develop a concept for the campaign and find people who are willing to help.
  • Actions taken
    • 2015: The first step was to reach out to NROs who have an alumni network, the "founders network" and other active alumni pockets of activity to learn and build relationships.
    • In January, we published a "newsletter" specifically for Alumni to announce our intention to move forward with specific programs and resources for them in 2016.
    • We switched gears to include all "highly active" Greenpeacers, whether Alumni, volunteer or staff.


The web is our platform :)

We should be integrating story, platform and community so we have an easy place to showcase the decentralized stories of the GP community (incl. staff/volunteers/activists/etc). Therefore, we've installed Wordpress and Buddypress at as a inspirational home for our community.

We needed a playground to show a global staff that open is possible (ahem, totally started here with!)
