Greg Delaune | Floating City Project



Greg Delaune | Floating City Project

Out on the Pacific horizon, Blue Frontiers is building autonomous floating islands, or “seasteads.” Seasteads are permanent settlements on floating structures, which Blue Frontiers is designing to be environmentally responsible and equipped with state-of-the-art communication technologies. These seasteads will function as integrated solution platforms for mitigating the impacts of sea level rise and climate change. Greg will discuss his technology partnership work with Blue Frontiers, giving an overview of this futuristic project, as well as some background on his international work in sustainability and local economic development.

Greg Delaune is cofounder and CEO of The Urban Innovation Exchange (UIX Global), and is Technology Partnerships Director for The Seasteading Institute and Blue Frontiers, working to build the first floating autonomous startup societies in French Polynesia. He is an internationally recognized consultant, teacher, speaker, and writer specializing in sustainable economic development and public-private partnerships (PPPs) for Green Cities and Smart Cities. Greg has over 15 years of international experience in economic development, urban design, and regional planning policy, managing multidisciplinary teams in the formulation and execution of innovative development strategies, including applied research on integrated sustainability tools and techniques for emerging economies in peripheral Europe and Latin America (e.g. Italy, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Uruguay). Greg is founder and editor of the blog Impact Urbanism.
