    Green Peace: an environmental activist group founded in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada in 1971 to oppose the U.S. testing nuclear devices in Alaska. The focus of the organization later turned to other environmental issues, and it become known for its campaigns against whaling, bottom trawling, global warming, ancient forest destruction, nuclear power, and genetic engineering. Greenpeace has national and regional offices in 42 countries worldwide, all of which are affiliated to the Amsterdam-based Greenpeace International. The global organization receives its income through the individual contributions of an estimated 2.8 million financial supporters, as well as from grants from charitable foundations.

    Green Party: a formally organized political party based on the principles of Green politics. These principles include environmentalism, reliance on grassroots democracy, nonviolence, and social justice causes, including those related to the rights of indigenous peoples. “Greens” believe that these issues are inherently related to ecological, social, and human bodily health.
