This innovative proposal by N-ARK Japanese maritime startup will integrate food production, architecture, data, energy, and ocean into one symbiotic system which utilizes maritime water as a new and resilient economic zone called ‘NEW OCEAN.’
“Through private-sector ocean business innovation, we will make the ocean a new economic zone (NEW OCEAN) and create an ocean economic zone that is resilient to climate change.”
The concept is “Dogen” which means the integration of medicine, food, and housing as the same origin. A smart healthcare floating city to adapt to climate change.
“Dogen City is committed to the NEW OCEAN, an ocean business innovation promoted by industry, academia, and government. This has both a social impact (e.g., responding to natural disasters, improving the marine environment, and accommodating climate refugees) and an economic impact (development using new technologies and businesses in addition to traditional shipping, resources, and national defense).”
