About Greenpeace Africa

Greenpeace Africa was founded in 2008 and is part of the Greenpeace global network that has recently celebrated 50 years of climate activism across the world. Greenpeace was founded in 1971 by a small group of concerned individuals, who set sail to Amchitka Island off the coast of Alaska to try and stop a US nuclear weapons test. Their old fishing boat was called “The Greenpeace”. Today, Greenpeace is present in over 40 countries around the world. Greenpeace Africa currently operates in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Cameroon, Kenya, Senegal, and South Africa to challenge the development and growth model rooted in the extractive, neo-colonial socio-economic model that is holding the African continent back and is contributing to the worsening climate crisis.

Greenpeace Africa’s vision is embedded in collective activism powered by the energy of millions of Africans to shape better legal, political and economic systems in ways that position Africa as a world leader and a source of untapped wisdom. In this new era, Africa’s people, communities, regional bodies, education institutions and progressive businesses are working together to create new approaches to build a better future for all of Africa’s people. Africa is influential and a source of inspiration to the world – a self-reliant and dynamic people.

Greenpeace Africa’s strategy aims at transforming Greenpeace Africa to be an organisation working on campaigns delivering systemic impacts in Africa with an operating model that is fit for purpose and responsive to the challenges facing Africa. By grounding African consciousness in all aspects of our work; we aspire to deliver a vision of an Africa where the people in Africa own the well-being of the continent in the face of the climate crisis.

Greenpeace Africa seeks to fill this vacancy with a highly qualified professional that has the flexibility to work remotely, as Greenpeace Africa implements a hybrid work location model, with work-from-home being the primary model of work.
