New Rainbow Warrior Certificate of Ownership

This certificate serves proof of symbolic ownership of a part of new Greenpeace Rainbow Warrior ship. I have chosen a wheelroom dimmer for two reasons. However insignificant it may seem, a dimmer helps control the lighting inside the wheelroom and those in the wheelroom control the entire ship. Secondly, dimmers help save electricity which feels right for a Greenpeace ship.


When I posted this picture on my facebook, some of my classmates made comments. Here is one of them.


My classmate: Come on Vlad. Greenpeace needs a new approach!


Me: It depends on how to look at it. I am not building an organization, I am "building" a ship. As a movement, Greenpeace brings together people from different backgrounds: from militants and nihilists to average pet owners and PhDs. Obviously, different people opt for different approaches. Controversy has always been at foundation of Greenpeace movement. Yet some unifying principles, such as protecting nature at large, remain.


So Anchors Aweigh! Good luck new Rainbow Warrior!
