Take Action with Nathan Santry (Parts I and II)
About the Webinar
We invite you to meet Nathan Santry, Greenpeace Actions Director, for an interactive training and discussion on Greenpeace’s peaceful protests and creative communications.
From putting himself in the path of a Japanese harpoon ship to save whales in the Southern Ocean, to coordinating complex actions and exposing corporate environmental criminals, Nathan’s experiences with Greenpeace will make for a very exciting conversation.
This webinar will be broadcast live from Greenpeace headquarters in Washington, DC.
About Nathan Santry
Nathan began as a volunteer and canvasser for Greenpeace in 1988. His father first introduced him to Greenpeace as the two visited the Greenpeace store on the Fishermen’s Wharf in San Francisco. He was immediately drawn to the video being shown on an old black and white TV. The video showed Greenpeace on the open seas confronting the Japanese whaling fleet with activists putting themselves between the harpooners and the whales. Right then and there, Nathan knew what he wanted to do with his life and years later, Nathan found himself in the Southern Ocean on a Greenpeace ship saving the whales and experiencing the action himself.
Not only is Nathan the Actions Director at Greenpeace, he is also a mentor and leader in the activist community as a whole. He holds a Fine Art degree in sculpture and video art from Cornish College of the Arts.
