 Vanessa Nakate Biography

Vanessa Nakate is a Ugandan climate justice activist. She grew up in Kampala and started her activism in December 2018 after becoming concerned about the unusually high temperatures in her country. Nakate founded the Youth for Future Africa and the likewise Africa-based Rise Up Movement.

Inspired by Greta Thunberg to start her own climate movement in Uganda, she began a solitary strike against inaction on the climate crisis in January 2019. For several months she was the lone protester outside of the gates of the Parliament of Uganda. Eventually, other youth began to respond to her calls on social media for others to help draw attention to the plight of the rain forests in the Congo.

In December 2019, Nakate was one of a handful of youth activists to speak at the COP25 gathering in Spain.

In early January 2020, she joined around 20 other youth climate activists from around the world to publish a letter to participants at the World Economic Forum, calling on companies, banks and governments to immediately stop subsidizing fossil fuels.

She was one of five international delegates invited by Arctic Basecamp to camp with them in Davos during the World Economic Forum; the delegates later joined a climate march on the last day of the Forum.

In January 2020, the Associated Press news agency cropped Nakate out from a photo she appeared in featuring Greta Thunberg and activists Luisa Neubauer, Isabelle Axelsson, and Loukina Tille after they all attended the World Economic Forum in Davos. Nakate accused the media of a racist attitude.

Nakate graduated with a Business Administration in Marketing from Makerere University Business School.
