COMMUNICATIONS NEWS: Greenpeace offers bunk on boat prize in whaling petition

Greenpeace is offering its activists the chance to win a bunk on a Greenpeace ship as part of a drive to rally support for its 'Icelandic Travel Pledge' campaign.

The organisation is running a competition through its website,, and is alerting supporters to the campaign through an email newsletter which has been sent out to hundreds of its 'cyber-activists' worldwide.

The Travel Pledge contest sets activists a challenge to get people to add their name to the Icelandic Travel Pledge, an online petition which states that the signatories would consider taking a holiday in Iceland if the Government of Iceland ended whaling.

By signing the pledge, supporters also agree to receive emails about tourism in Iceland once the whaling programme is suspended by the Government.

Participants can build up credits by writing an email containing a link to the Travel Pledge petition and sending it on to friends and family.

The winner will be decided on the strength of how many people they get to sign the petition.

Greenpeace says it has the support of Iceland's tourist industry, and has already collected more than 13,000 signatures.
