LIVING IN SYMBIOSIS
WITH
& ON THE OCEANS

By 2050, demand for ocean space for aquaculture and marine energy production will have increased 9-fold while the coasts have become increasingly congested spatially, environmentally, demographically, socially and economically.

 

We wish to reconcile the imperative preservation of marine biodiversity with the necessary development of a generative Offshore Blue Economy whose ecosystem is at the service of all living beings and stakeholders. Our mission aims to anticipate the inevitable marine anthropization for resilient and healthy oceans.

SMART OFFSHORE ECOSYSTEMS

In the medium term, our world will have to face unprecedented environmental and societal challenges: climate change, food and energy crises, increasing scarcity of resources, demographic, geopolitical and migratory changes. Gradually, mankind will be looking to the sea for solutions to adapt to these changes, and in response to the global demand for essential resources and economic stability. The ocean will become an increasingly dense and coveted workspace.

 

In the long term, we think that people will settle and live on the ocean to work, close to the increasingly saturated coasts, then progressively further out to sea. For reasons of comfort, impact or productivity, going ashore every day will no longer be a viable option. Consequently, they will gradually have to learn to live and thrive at sea within new forms of multi-use integrated offshore sustainable and desirable habitat. This will mark new Human-Sea relationship and dependency.

 

How can we anticipate such a development and ensure that it serves all living beings on Earth?

 

To meet these challenges, The Indigo Civilization advocates the study, operational experimentation and long-term optimization of the concept of Smart Offshore Ecosystems.

 

Gradually, they will bring together small communities within floating, multi-use maritime infrastructures that are non-invasive, modular and mobile, autonomous and regenerative like artificial reefs. Ports of the future, research stations, economic hubs and reinvented places to live, Smart Offshore Ecosystems will become all these things at once, and will prove an opportunity to facilitate the sustainable deployment of a profitable ecosystem-based offshore blue economy: MRE, aquaculture, logistics, tourism, biotechnologies, surveillance.

 

Integrated into their environment and capable of relieving pressure on land without altering the local marine ecosystem, Smart Offshore Ecosystems will be a desirable long-term adaptation solution for maritime territories particularly threatened by climate change, such as sea level rise.​
