On the waves of the future: the floating city will retain the coastal villages from floodsPictolic
The problem of global warming are a storm cloud hanging over our planet. The water of the oceans can get out of its banks and flood the coastal towns and villages, sweeping away everything in its path. To protect residents hazardous areas, the UN division for sustainable development, together with the club "Oceanix" created a plan to build large floating cities where you can live a full life, to develop the necessary energy and even grow vegetables and fruits.
Read about the unique project of construction of the floating villages of the future in our material.UN investigates the possibility of building floating cities due to an increased water level in the oceans.
90% of the biggest cities on the planet are at risk of being flooded if the water level rises due to global warming.Modular platforms that are mounted using anchors to the seabed, can be interconnected in a circle. On those platforms will be able to settle people. Thus to live directly on the ocean waves.The division of UN-habitat, who is working on the development of cities, merge with a private firm "Oceanix", Massachusetts Institute of technology and a professional group of "The Explorers Club" to develop the best concept.Floating city is the best solution for the future. The Association plans to build a prototype of such a settlement in the coming months and open it to the public. It wants to pull on the waters of the East river, next to the headquarters of the United Nations.
