Greenpeace • Glasto Fest Feed

Greenpeace

Greenpeace is a movement of people who are passionate about defending the natural world from destruction, with their vision being a “greener, healthier and more peaceful planet, one that can sustain life for generations to come”. The charity has been a partner of Glastonbury since 1992, and in return for creating an amazing field full of attractions (think hot showers, café, stage and bands, skate ramp, climbing wall), the Festival makes a very generous donation to Greenpeace to enable them to carry on protecting and conserving the environment and promoting peace.

Volunteering Opportunities

Greenpeace Roles

General info

Every year an amazing team of volunteers bring the Greenpeace Field to life. Together, they keep it looking beautiful, support the campsite, spread the Greenpeace message and so much more. It’s hard work, but very rewarding.

Below you’ll find a brief outline of the roles (which may change slightly) that are likely to be needed at the Festival – Although in the past you may have been asked to indicate your preferred role, in recent years Greenpeace have streamlined things and you will not be asked to do this as they will select your role based on the skills and experience you include on your application.

These volunteers will be required to help work on different features and to be on hand to fill positions when needed.

This role involves mandatory recycling duties (we need to keep our field clean in true Greenpeace style!)
