Adenike describes herself as an “eco-feminist”– in fact, that is her Twitter name — who is passionate about increasing youth involvement in climate action. She has said that this can be achieved through climate education; and promoting the importance of women’s rights.

Adenike is also head of the “ILeadClimate” movement for peace, security and equality in Africa, particularly in the Lake Chad region which is being devastated by the climate change crisis. As part of the “Fridays For Future” (FFF) movement in Nigeria, she shared the 2019 Ambassador of Conscience award of Amnesty International with Greta Thunberg and the FFF movement.
