Floating cities: the solution to land scarcity, sea level rise and climate change

Beeldzeggend Filmproducties has shared an impressive mini-documentary on YouTube presenting several experts (among which our co-founder Rutger de Graaf) on sustainability, transition management, governance, water technology and floating developments. At Blue21, we are already convinced that floating cities are the solution to worldwide land scarcity and the recipe for dealing with sea level rise and climate change. We know we should sway with water instead of only raising land. Now a climate adaptive reaction of the government is required…

As the video clearly explains, not everybody shares the innovative ideas and opinions of these experts. Most people react sceptically against living on water, since water should be considered a threat. Now, the time has come to prove that nothing is further from the truth. The Floating Pavilion, developed by DeltaSync in co-operation with the Municipality of Rotterdam is proof!

How great an opportunity it would be for The Netherlands to accommodate the first knowledge and expertise centre in the field of floating construction!

It is just a matter of time…
