Floating cities: what’s next?
The first floating city in the world won’t be built in a day. What should be the next step to get there? That’s what we asked ourselves during a strategy brainstorm* at De Ceuvel**, a workspace for social enterprises and sustainable urban development.
The answer? Surprisingly we all agreed on the same thing: we believe the next step to a floating city should be to build a small floating hub where people can see and experience the blue revolution. The size of the floating hub could start at four m2 including a tiny home or workspace plus a small floating farm next to it to grow food and algae.
Since we cannot do this alone, we want to realize this next step together with our expert network, and possibly with you? Right now we are working on a business plan for this idea which could include a crowd funding campaign, so we’ll definitely keep you posted.
