LIVING IN SYMBIOSIS
WITH
& ON THE OCEANS

By 2050, demand for ocean space for aquaculture and marine energy production will have increased 9-fold. We wish to reconcile the preservation of marine biodiversity with the necessary development of a generative Offshore Blue Economy whose integrated ecosystem is at the service of all living beings and stakeholders.

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. They will gradually have to learn to live and thrive at sea within new forms of multi-use integrated offshore urbanism that are efficient, sustainable and desirable. 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 optimisation of Smart Offshore Ecosystems. Created by and for their citizens and workers, they bring together small communities within non-invasive, modular, autonomous, ecological and generative floating ocean cities, like artificial reefs. Integrated into their environment and capable of relieving pressure on land without altering the local marine ecosystem, they aim to produce food, fresh water and energy in a renewable way. Ports or farms of the future, oceanic research stations and reinvented places to live, they are an opportunity, a viable and desirable solution for anticipating or adapting to serve all stakeholders in the face of the consequences of climate change: biodiversity, local communities, economic actors, public authorities. Eventually, multi-purpose and shared Smart Offshore Ecosystems are ushering in fair and profitable future business models.
