As we to work and promote greener solutions to solve many of the region’s environmental challenges and problems, Greenpeace Southeast Asia continues to grow and innovate.
Currently, strategic changes are happening within the organisation, around the world and in our region to enable us to soar to greater heights. At the heart of this change, is our ambitious new Operating Model that will streamline and improve our decision-making, organisational structures and processes, training and hiring of people, and help us use technology to better deliver fast paced campaigns. Through this model we have:
Change can be challenging, but the planned changes take us to greater heights: we strive to be an organisation that is lean, agile, integrated, innovative and one that is capable of delivering our goals while at the frontlines of the environmental movement.
The new model also allows for people from across Greenpeace to collaborate and share their expertise, strengthening our campaign work, as well as offer greater access to the vast and diverse skill-sets of our staff and community members.
The new model works in collaboration with the environment movement and offers our allies, volunteers, supporters and donors a greater voice in Greenpeace Southeast Asia, ensuring that leadership is nurtured and invested in.
Given that positive changes are already taking place in the organisation, 2015 will see Greenpeace Southeast Asia staff and supporters play an even greater role in leading activism on critical issues as we fight to save our planet.
