Meet the climate activists
In the run up to COP28, Oxfam is collaborating with climate activists from around the world who are on the front lines of the fight against climate change.
Hilda Flavia Nakabuye, Uganda
"Coming from my country Uganda, climate activism is not a choice, it’s a daily struggle."
Lavetanalagi Seru, Fiji
"I come from a community and a country that is at the frontlines of the climate crisis, and I’ve seen first-hand the disproportionate impacts of the climate crisis on our people and our natural ecosystem."
Marinel Ubaldo, The Philippines
"I simply cannot accept that our people in the Philippines are dying because of a phenomenon – the climate crisis – that we haven’t even caused."
Pavel Martiarena, Peru
"What moves me to be here is hope, but I am also aware that we cannot live only on emotions and hopes."
