Office Space

Green activism takes root in this Argentina workspace

The Buenos Aires office of Greenpeace walks its green talk. Compost bins, solar panels and battery recycling allow employees of the global environmental organisation to cut their environmental impact while they plan campaigns on issues such as global warming and overfishing.

Climbing walls allow activists to practise for oft-unsanctioned protest actions on buildings and ships and dozens of animal costumes are available for demonstrations, including a polar bear suit used to protest Arctic drilling.

Does this office space work? Greenpeace employees in the 55-person office share their thoughts on what works — and what doesn’t — in this Argentinean workplace.
