Greenpeace will present an array of music performances, live DJ sessions, celebrity chef cookalongs, plant-based recipes plus much more, focusing on how – once the worst of the COVID crisis has settled – we must come together and push forward to build a fairer, safer, cleaner, and more resilient world.

Greenpeace AAA will focus on three areas:
1) ACTION – Take action with Greenpeace.
Non-violent direct action is the beating heart of Greenpeace. People who take action are preventing damage to the environment and disrupting business-as-usual. It’s important to stand up for what’s right. Together we can defend the natural world and stand for a green and peaceful future.
Now more than ever, with what is happening around the world and the anti-racist movement, we need to come together and speak up. Inequality and the perpetuation of oppression is one critical reason humanity is now facing the climate crisis.
A call to arms – by joining Greenpeace you choose to share the vision of a greener, healthier and more peaceful planet.
This virtual space will focus on 7 ways to join Greenpeace in activism.
2) ALL (you can eat!) – easy guide to eating ‘better’ for yourself and the planet.
This area will focus on the benefits of a plant-based diet to protect our ancient forests. One of the most useful things everyone can do to take action on climate change *right now* is to eat less meat. Eating plant-based food can be tasty too!
In this section you will find tips to increase the amount of plant-based foods in your diet and why this is a good thing for the health of the planet.
Featuring plant-based cooking shows with celebrity chefs (names TBA soon), easy guide recipes, gardening tips, plus much more.
3) AREAS – exclusive performances, DJs, backstage chat etc. presented by the brilliant presenter, humanitarian, DJ and vegan Sarah Lamptey.
Greenpeace AAA will commence on the weekend of 18-20 June and will continue throughout the summer, with further performances and events to be announced.
You’ll be able to tune into all the action via a newly designed and fully interactive website Actionallareas.org where you’ll be able to easily navigate your way across the various areas, enjoy some live music, learn a new plant-based recipe or simply discover how to take action now and become a part of Greenpeace.
