7 reasons

why our future is on the water

1. We are running out of land

By the end of this century, we will require an additional 22 million km2 of land to live on and to grow food and biofuels. On water, there’s enough space: about 70% of our planet is sparkling blue.

2. Cities on land are vulnerable

With sea levels rising and more extreme weather, more and more flooding will occur in the future. On water, floating houses, farms and parks automatically adapt to the rising water level.

3. Water will save us from our addiction to fossil fuel

To rid ourselves of this addiction, we need to capture CO2 and use it as a resource to produce biofuel. On water, we can do this by capturing CO2 in floating algae farms.
