Exciting development for the future of world’s first seastead

On the 13th of January, the French Polynesian President, Édouard Fritch, will travel from Tahiti to San Francisco to meet with members of the Seasteading Institute. The purpose of his visit is to sign a Memorandum of Understanding, confirming the agreement with the Seasteading Institute to collaborate on developing the world’s first seastead in French Polynesia.

Blue21 co-founder Karina Czapiewska has travelled to California to witness this monumental step in the development of a floating city in the South Pacific. Last autumn Blue21 was also part of a delegation that travelled to Tahiti to meet with President Fritch and other government officials to discuss plans to develop a seastead in French Polynesian waters. If all goes to plan, the special governing framework needed to realize development, will be completed by the end of 2017.

Seasteading delegation present proposal to Polynesian President

An international team of seasteading delegates travelled to Tahiti where they had the opportunity to meet with the Polynesian President Édouard Fritch and several other government officials. There they formally presented a proposal for a seastead in the waters surrounding the Pacific Island.  Blue21 co-founder Bart Roeffen was one of the nine team members who travelled to Tahiti to share his ideas on realizing sustainable floating islands in French Polynesia.

The Seasteading Institute wrote a blog on this extraordinary trip.
