Geofrey Junior Waako

I am a passionate advocate for animal welfare, environmental sustainability, and sustainable food systems. With a background in law, I have dedicated my career to driving positive change through advocacy and activism. As the founder and Executive Director of Youth for Animals and Veganism Africa (YAVA), I lead initiatives promoting plant-based living and combating industrial agriculture across Africa. Additionally, I serve as a ProVeg Youth Board member and a World Food Forum Youth Representative for 2024, where I contribute to global discussions on sustainable food systems. My diverse experiences enable me to effectively advocate for policy reforms, raise awareness, and mobilize resources to create a more compassionate and sustainable world for all beings.
