Welcome to the blue frontier!
Support our Indiegogo campaign
After reviewing early input from survey responses, we’ve begun honing our plans for what could become the world’s first seastead city. We are now calling on everyone in the seasteading community to contribute to our Indiegogo campaign, launched to help fund an innovative engineering design we’re contracting out to our partners at DeltaSync.
Watch Joe Quirk, author of the upcoming seasteading book, explain why we picked DeltaSync, the Dutch water architecture and multidisciplinary research firm, to design a novel and sustainable floating city.
For five years, The Seasteading Institute has been conducting research into the potential for permanent, innovative communities – floating at sea. We are championing this vision because we believe humanity needs a new, blue frontier, where we can all be free to demonstrate new ways of living together. If you dream of living in a small floating city and can afford the cost of living in a major metropolis, please fill out our form. Your participation will help us determine the optimal specifications for what could become the world’s first floating city.
You could soon live in international waters, and enjoy the "freedom of the high seas." As the last unclaimed territory on the earth, the ocean will give you the ability to peacefully express yourself without the encyclopedia of laws and tangle of bureaucracies that are present on land. As a seasteader, you can start fresh and live with minimal regulation. Explore a revolutionary opportunity for civilization – a bold experiment with personal freedom.
As Earth’s final frontier, the ocean offers radical possibilities for some of your boldest economic dreams. From harnessing the immense stores of energy and nutrients, to serving the global demand for financial, medical, and human services, seasteading will give to rise many 21st century fortunes. International waters offer you a more friendly regulatory environment, and allow for worldwide recruitment of entrepreneurs, investment capital, and top talent. The oceans are already the superhighway of trade – seastead real estate will be optimally located to tap into the bloodlines of a globalized planet.
Demonstrate a Better Way of Living
We see experimentation as the source of all progress. Many innovations - on numerous seasteads - will allow humanity to rapidly improve how we live together. As a resident of the first floating city, you will set the course for others to follow. In the coming decades hundreds of thousands of people will follow you to the sea to be a part of a global change based on personal choice, environmental responsibility, and economic opportunity. In three to five years, you could live in an ocean city far beyond anyone’s imagination. Together we can change the world.
