Alexander T. Clayton, born and raised in New Jersey, is a student of Anthropology at Southern New Hampshire University, focusing on Environmental Sustainability. As a budding Environmental Anthropologist, Alexander is determined to use his knowledge and be at the forefront of future city projects, making sure that they are both efficient for humans and environmentally sound. Having previous ties with Humanity+ as a volunteer writer and the Transhumanism movement, and as an advisory board member for The Lifeboat Foundation, Alexander is keyed into the latest technologies and issues that humanity faces, whether it be social, political, or environmental.
Alexander is passionate about advancing humanity onwards through the future, with dreams of humanity reaching a Tier 1 Civilization on the Kardashev Scale by 2100. In order to see that dream become a reality, Alexander is determined to get on the “ground floor” of these future city projects, and do his part to make that dream a reality. To Alexander, seasteading is one of humanity’s next great frontiers, and it is happening within the next fifty years. As a means of healing our oceans, solving our overpopulation crisis, and learning to live more in harmony with nature, seasteading is one of the many answers to the global crises that we as a species face in our time.
