Josh Whiton is an eco-tech entrepreneur and social innovator helping to repair the Earth.
At the age of 23, he founded a tech-startup that got people out of cars and onto public transit, creating jobs while reducing fossil fuel emissions and the carbon footprint of millions. For his positive impact on people and planet Josh was named a Champion of Change by then president Obama. Josh’s company was also named one of the most innovative companies in transportation by Fast Company before being acquired by the Ford Motor Company to form Ford Smart Mobility.
Josh also co-founded one of the first urban farms in the southeastern United States. Still in operation today, the urban farm helps thousands of people each year to participate in a more beautiful food system.
His latest planetary innovation is orchestrating a global, people-powered movement to regenerate the Earth — MakeSoil.org.
