Supporting island populations to remain viable and sustainable, James Ellsmoor, Island Innovation

James is the founder of Island Innovation, an organization that works with diverse rural and island communities around the world to develop solutions for sustainable development and prosperity. Island Innovation uses its global network to find innovative answers through modern technology and sharing good practice, building digital bridges between far-flung islands.

James has a Master’s Degree in Island Studies from the University of the Highlands and Islands. He is also a co-founder of Solar Head of State (SHOS), which works with governments to push action on renewable energy. The NGO has focused on small island developing states (SIDS) with solar installations on the Office of the Prime Minister of Jamaica, Government House in Saint Lucia and the Presidential Palace of the Maldives.

SHOS is now working with the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States and the Pacific Island Development Forum to install solar on the official residences across these organizations’ combined 24 member states. Growing up on a farm in Shropshire, England, James now lives as a digital nomad, moving wherever his latest project takes him!
