I Can Sea my House from Here

By the year 2050, the first floating "seasteads" will have been initiated, the first of which will be government funded projects. Over time, whole offshore cities will appear, many even becoming sovereign or privatized. These will be fully sustainable, using the power of the ocean, sun, and wind to generate electricity. Water will come from filtered ocean water, and seafood will be a staple of the diet.

Julián González The solution for the lack of space in continents due to +10B population may be live floating on water 04 May 2019
Bradley Probably will happen at some point, if not in 2050, then further on. Shame if you don't like seafood though. 10 Mar 2019
Alex Joseph Lau Maybe further into the future? I can see this as a small scale tourism activity in 2050. 06 Feb 2019
James Royle They could set up seasteads now if the willpower was there. The cleanup of the ocean gyres and submerged low-lying nations could prompt the necessity for such innovations. 06 Feb 2019
