reimagining civilization with floating communities

Seasteading means building floating cities with significant political autonomy.

Nearly half the world’s surface is unclaimed by any nation-state, and many coastal nations can legislate seasteads in their territorial waters.

The Seasteading Institute is a nonprofit organization.

We promote the creation of floating ocean cities as a revolutionary solution to some of the world’s most pressing problems: rising sea levels, overpopulation, poor governance, and more

We are working on drafting Classification Society Rules and Standards which is the first step to making it possible to create a category for seasteads in flagging registries. The Rules and Standards will become a baseline tool for seasteaders.
