Zala is a student at Addis Ababa University and a climate advocate in Ethiopia. She first got involved in the youth climate activist space at the age of 16. Fears around the future of young people across the planet prompted her to become very active in the fight against climate change – and to make sure that others join him too! she believes that collective action is far better than individual action. Zala’s strength is mobilizing people; he works with several environmental organizations on many issues important to him including recurring droughts and floods.
