Introduction In 1971, the group of enthusiasts, on board of the rusty boat Philis Cormac, sailed from Vancouver to protest against nuclear tests conducted by the U.S. Government on the Island of Aleutian. The first, spontaneous trip was not a resounding success, however, has created the foundations of the Greenpeace organisation, which works currently (in more than 40 countries) to eliminate the greatest threats the environment. One of the most famous ships of this organisation was ‘Rainbow Warrior‘ in the years of 1978-85. Although currently Geenpeace is considered to be an extreme organization, many of its statutory objectives we loved ones. That's why we have taken the best value of it and we have created the game „RAINBOW SAILORS”. Preschoolers become the crew of the ship. The crew is aimed at saving Earth from the dangers posed by the progress of civilization.
