About HOMEF

We are an ecological think tank organization advocating for environmental / climate justice and food sovereignty in Nigeria and Africa at large.

Why HOMEF?

Exploitation of Nature is a reflection of the unjust relations between people and the social, political, gender, economic crises in society. Dissatisfied with the impunity in our environment, we believe that:

The rights of Mother Earth must be safe guarded

Communities should be equipped to voice protest against oppression and pollution in their environment

Justice must prevail in our engagement with the environment and nature’s cycles at policy, corporate, and individual level

Our Approach

We believe in locally generated knowledge and practice, and the need for people-centred dialogues.

Our thinking is ecological minded, rooted in an ideology of living in harmony with nature and the environment.

We are focused on unearthing the systemic roots (social, political and economic factors) of environmental and food challenges.
