As a senior director and member of the international program council of Greenpeace USA and Greenpeace International respectively, Mark Warford was engaged in a multitude of frontline environmental justice activities stretching from the Russian Arctic to the atolls of the South Pacific and beyond. As a primary documenter of environmental protest on issues ranging from nuclear testing to toxic trade to climate change, Warford acquired a rare and valuable insight to the plight of the natural world, often witnessing firsthand the severe and irreversible impact of humanity’s wrongdoing.
To honor his commitment to raise awareness of the ongoing impacts of global warming, in 2009 Warford was elected as a '100 Places' Global Climate Ambassador, joining the aforementioned Archbishop Desmond Tutu, along with Australian Minister for Environment Protection, Heritage and the Arts, Peter Garrett, Rajendra Kumar Pachauri chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and Danish Actress Connie Inge-Lise Nielsen.
Beginning in 2011, Warford began production on the human rights-focused cinematic, live theatrical and five-part dramatized audio event, 'A Voyage For Soldier Miles'. Co-produced with renowned Swedish sonic artist, Leif E. Boman, the work was published in February 2015.
