Gaston Kokou Dossou heads the Institute for Sustainability in Togo. He has worked in management and marketing in various companies since 2011.

In 2016, he participated in a workshop on waste management, especially waste disposal and recycling. This was organized by Technik ohne Grenzen e. V. at the University of Ghana. Other training topics were: Social Entrepreneurship, Leadership Concepts and Volunteering. Mr Dossou has since successfully implemented a waste separation and disposal concept in the hospital an in a school in Bassar (Togo).

Mr Dossou works closely with the non-profit association Fi Bassar e. V..

He founded the initiative “Recycle up! Togo” and wants to sensitise young people in Togo in particular to waste avoidance and recycling. He is currently working on a recycling project for plastic waste, in which youths and young adults collect the wast and take it to stations where it is recycled. This not only reduces plastic waste, but also create jobs.
