Vanessa Nakate

Vanessa Nakate is a 23 year old internationally recognised climate activist from Kampala, Uganda. Shocked by Uganda╩╝s rising temperatures due to climate change and the government╩╝s inaction to address the issue, Vanessa was moved to start her own climate movement in Uganda.

In January 2019, just before graduating university, Vanessa began a solitary strike in Kampala urgently calling for lower carbon emissions, climate equity, and renewable energy to mitigate climate disaster.

For several months she was the lone protester outside of the gates of the Parliament of Uganda. Eventually, other young people began to respond to her calls on social media, helping to draw attention to the plight of the rainforests in the Congo. Vanessa has been striking ever since, and she is now an organizer for Fridays For Future Uganda, Save the Congo Rainforest Strikes. She has also founded the Africa-based Rise Up Movement and Youth for Future Africa.
