In accordance with an MOU signed in 2017, Blue Frontiers, through its collaboration with The Seasteading Institute, completed a set of environmental, economic, and legal studies regarding the development and stationing of sustainable seasteads in French Polynesian waters, subject to a special regulatory framework granting them substantial autonomy.
French Polynesia is one of the promising countries we are cultivating relationships with in regards to stationing seasteads. It is a tropical country of 118 islands in the Pacific ocean, where we have identified a variety of suitable locations. It is outside the hurricane belt, has modern cabled internet connections, and many airline links to major cities including Los Angeles and San Francisco.
While one local community has recently expressed opposition, another which is concerned by sea level rise has also reached out to embrace our project, and many more options are also being considered. One of our main goals for the first half of 2018 is to identify a specific suitable location to take the project to. Among our options are uninhabited locations, as well as others where we will establish mutually beneficial relationships with the local community and our growing network of supporters.
