Youth Engagement Program Manager

Omesa has a fervent passion for environmental and climate justice and equity. He is deeply committed to addressing issues that bedevil EJ and underserved communities at the frontlines of climate change. Omesa grew up in the Kisii highlands in Western Kenya where he witnessed firsthand the devastating impacts of climate change and made it a personal mission to help communities adapt to and enhance their resilience towards those impacts.

Omesa currently lives in Worcester, Massachusetts where he moved to in 2021 when he joined Graduate School at Clark University. While at Clark, he founded The Climate Voices Podcast, a unique platform that breaks siloes and bridges the communication gap between policymakers, scientists, researchers, climate activists, and community practitioners from around the globe. Through insightful conversations and sharing success stories, he aims to inspire and mobilize collective action towards a more just, sustainable, and resilient world.

Omesa graduated in the summer of 2023 with a master’s degree in Environmental Science & Policy with a concentration in Climate Change Impacts & Adaptation. He brings his over 8 years of experience in environmental campaigning and climate advocacy to his role at Clean Water Action as the Youth Engagement Program Manager where he will be adapting the Youth Action Collaborative curriculum and empowering youth to take action on environmental issues in Massachusetts. Before joining Clean Water Action, Omesa was an Energy Equity Fellow at Energy Allies and before that, he was an Environmental Justice Climate Equity Fellow at MobilizeGreen.

Outside of work, Omesa is a photographer, and he enjoys playing billiards and watching soccer and movies!
