These brave activists garnered international attention for their voyage to Amchitka . They went from being outsiders of Sierra Club to being “on the inside looking out” -- able to take on the issues that mattered to them. Bob Hunter, one of the first voyagers, had this to say when he came back: [READ QUOTE ON SLIDE] Today, similarly, we are seeing many people wanting to be more engaged with Greenpeace -- to be on the inside playing meaningful roles.
Why does this matter for Greenpeace? (1) Bigger wins -- we won the Nestle campaign in a record 9 weeks (2) More money -- those who volunteer donate more, and donate more often (3) Retention -- Those who volunteer stay involved for a longer period of time and do more. ======CUT??====== Our initial research shows that volunteers who take on their own efforts are more likely to engage in organization-defined efforts later on. Co-creating campaigns with volunteers results in broader leadership on issues that matter to us and increased volunteer retention.
Tremendous opportunity -- tap power and creativity of 17M Surplus of energy, ideas, creativity
