Marinea is a research project into ocean colonization. Our slogan, “Seas – the Future!” is our firm belief that the oceans are mankind’s hope for a better future. The primary purpose is the expansion of livable area by creating permanent human settlements (called seasteads), floating on the surface of the water.
We are championing the call of ocean colonization. Let’s get the first village at sea built, and then grow from there and build several cities on the ocean.
There is an incredible shortage of land worldwide, an overabundance of people, and heartbreaking problems that are a result of this over-crowding.
If you watched the video, you know that Earth’s population has just passed 7 billion on its way to 10 billion by 2050. Have you asked how we are going to be able feed, house, and clothe 40% more people? We’ve asked, and we have some sensible answers. What is needed is more livable space, and since we can’t create more land we need to think about expanding to the sea.
Since living permanently and self-sufficiently at sea has not been done before in large numbers, we will emulate homesteading (on the water) as our foundation.
Consider this, two thirds of the planet is ocean, unclaimed and free for colonization. We build cities in the middle of deserts, and even in swamp-lands; so why not in the ocean! The technology exists to make this happen in our lifetime.
