Who is GreenActionNews?

Environmental issues are often not covered adequately by the mainstream media. Our mission is to provide reliable coverage of environmental concerns where misinformation is common and activists are often portrayed in the mainstream media as misfits and finge actors. This service is entirely free of charge, the stories are there for all to use, and the site is open to everyone.

GreenActionNews is founded by JD Sullivan, who has a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism/Mass Communication earned at Olivet College. The mission of GreenActionNews is to provide an online news source committed to delivering accurate and reliable coverage of environmental activism around the world.


The strategy is to achieve local coverage of global issues by recruiting writers all around the earth to cover environmental  concerns and activism taking place where they live and beyond. Unlike many websites, GreenActionNews does not aggregate content. Unlike "fakenews" sites, we fact check and we seek comments from all the stakeholders in a story. In other words, we do real journalism.

Why Your Help Is Needed


Real Journalism requires time, resources and people.
Since 2013, GreenActionNews so far has been supported by the personal investment of  JD Sullivan. We've tried Google Ads but the revenues are insufficient and often the ads that Google serves promotes misleading propaganda by those who oppose environmental causes. 

We are in need of consistent, reliable funding to cover the costs of running GreenActionNews. This includes:
  • Technical costs which includes hosting the website, site maintenance, spam prevention, marketing on social media, newsletter, software upgrades, and eventually a podcast version featuring the stories we cover.
  • Paying our contributing writers and regional editors located in Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, South/Central America,and Oceana.

To get a sense of where we're going with all this, you can visit our  Pathway page. GreenActionNews is grassroots-powered environmental journalism. And as we develop our online Community feature we will be able to source more stories more directly from grassroots activists while maintaining our dedication to journalistic integrity.


How you can help

By making a monthly contribution through Patreon, you will be covering the costs that enable us to keep on publishing our stories and expanding our coverage. Our goal is daily coverage of environental activism reaching every watershed of Earth. You can help by selecting the level at which you can offer your support using the links to the right.
