Oceanus’ Ephemerisle RSVP Application: Newtopia: Eco-Island of Change

Welcome to our land of the extraordinary—a place where architecting better models of existence is our prime directive, where environmental sustainability is our passion, and where positive transformation is mandatory. In this realm of unbridled dreams and endless opportunity, strong and ever-lasting connections are forged and anything is possible.

Join us, July 11-17, in co-creating this floating eco-utopia where United Nations ambassadors exchange titillating ideas on floating tea lounges with Architects of Awe from events like Burning Man; where revolutionaries dance under the moonlight with community organizers to the electric vibrations of a more promising tomorrow; where innovators of bleeding edge technologies collaborate with Silicon Valley impact investors over margaritas made by mind controlled blenders; where exemplary musicians coordinate their rhythms with breathtaking visual projections mapped by brilliant artists for all to enjoy.

Immersed in this exhilarating, one-of-a-kind experienceyou will be transformed.

Through mist and vibrant turquoise waters, a vision appears:

What is Oceanus?
OCEANUS IS: a collaborative community of Doers, Thinkers, Dreamers, Disruptors, and Visionaries joining forces to enact positive change for the betterment of planetary existence.
OCEANUS IS: a new and innovative approach to seasteading and environmental stewardship–an economical and technically viable venture for transforming plastic debris into non-toxic, habitable environments in international waters.
OCEANUS IS: the meta–a network of networks, a community for communities, we are the space in between points, the connectors, the intangibles.
OCEANUS IS: a platform–of perpetual possibility, a mechanism for countless previously unimagined visions to sprout from, manifesting solutions to the most critical challenges of our time. 

We are the movers and the shakers of the world, moving across the waters and shaking archaic systems to the ground. Join us, let’s move and shake together, for united, our brothers and sisters, we are unstoppable.

What is Ephemerisle?
EPHEMERISLE IS: an annual week-long gathering (July 11-17) on the Sacramento River Delta in sunny California, brimming with creators, innovators, and change makers there to indulge in their water-based joys in an ecstatic celebration of life–all while collaborating, ideating, and architecting better models for the future!
EPHEMERISLE IS: Burning Man meeting Life Aquatic in a completely free, decentralized, and deregulated zone, where ephemeral islands are constructed and enjoyed for the duration of this one of a kind event!
EPHEMERISLE IS: an experimental floating celebration of community, learning, art, seasteading, and differing forms of governance.

Be an architect of a more excellent tomorrow–join us in the creation of this better model.
