This week for our final episode of season 2 we chat with Desmond Alugnoa about the Green Africa Youth Organisation (GAYO). Co-founded by Desmond in 2014, GAYO is leading a Sustainable Community Project employing women in low-income communities to collect and process domestic waste for profit. In a country facing severe issues with public waste dumping and mismanagement, Desmond's organisation is leading the way to a sustainable future. Tune in for some inspiration and to hear Desmond's call to action!

In this final episode of season three, we speak with Shuhei Tashiro, co-founder of the Sustainable Ocean Alliance Japan Hub, and Kokoro Watanabe, an integral member of the Hub with the title of Investigator. Shuhei is a masters student studying Anthropology at Heidelberg University in Germany, whilst Kokoro is a Biotechnology in Japan with a strong interest in marine biology, but they both have a deep passion for all things ocean! Together we talk about their journey in founding and working for the SOA Japan Hub, and reflect on the joys and challenges of spreading ocean awareness. Closing off the season in a meaningful way, Shuhei and Kokoro remind us of the love for our environment that we all experience in our own way.
