This short series of six volumes is designed to help young people understand the vital role of organisations like the Red Cross and the World Wide Fund for Nature in their struggles to create a better world. Illustrated in full colour throughout in many cases from the archives of the organisations concerned, these are lively, authoritative books that help young people to grow up as caring members of society. This is the story of Greenpeace, the international, non-violent and non-political organization, which highlights the damage humans are doing to the environment. It started in 1971 when a group of twelve Canadian volunteers set off in a small boat to try to stop a nuclear bomb from being exploded. No one had ever taken such risk before. They went because no one would listen to their demands that the test should not be allowed because of the risk to the environment. Now there are over four million members and volunteers. Greenpeace makes the world "bear witness" to the crimes it is continuing against the environment and continues to succeed in its protest against self-destruction.
