Hilda is the founder of Uganda's chapter of Fridays for Future and she organized impactful demonstrations, mobilizing youth and advocating for policy reforms to mitigate the effects of climate change. In addition to her grassroots activism, Nakabuye has played a pivotal role in elevating climate discourse on the global stage. She has delivered powerful speeches at prominent events such as the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP) and has been featured in numerous media outlets, amplifying her message of urgency and action.
