From Vancouver, it was a natural thing for Katie Chowne to be drawn to all things ocean. SCUBA and kayak certified, for a year even lived on a boat. She first got involved in politics at the age of 18, running for the BC Marijuana Party. This led her to the Libertarian Party and she took on the role of Leader of the federal party from 2011-2014.
“I appreciate all aspects of what seasteading offers; a chance to start from the ground up, the ability to test some new theories about governance, and create an environment that allows for the use and innovation of new technologies, like algae production for bio fuels and food, water-based agriculture, and all the new technology that will be created to run a seasteading. My goal as an Ambassador is to promote all of these aspects to those around me. Many people are unaware of the freedom, visceral happiness that can be found on water, and I hope to relate this sense of lifestyle every chance I get.”
