Sea levels are rising faster and higher than previously thought. Recently published reports by experts in the US government and the United Nations all increased the expected sea level rise in the United States from 3 feet to more than 7 feet by 2100 –and it keeps getting higher over time. Even at the 3-foot level, millions of Americans will be forced to leave their homes by 2100 due to rising seas and increased flooding causing loss of land, infrastructure, and water resources.
Sustainable City Project’s (SCP) mission is to prepare America for the impact of rising sea levels and the population migration of millions of people from coastal communities. We are bringing together the best people, the latest research and technology, and the most creative city planning and design talent from around the world to build the first sustainable city in the United States from the ground up – starting now! To learn more, visit our website at www.scpnow.org .
Your donation will be used to support research, identify the location of the city and ultimately create the blueprint that will be used to build the first sustainable city in the United States.
* As a reward for a donation in any amount, your name will be prominently placed on our founder's wall in the City Center.
* As a reward for a donation of $50, you will receive a Sustainable City Project T-Shirt.
* For a donation of $250, you will receive a Founder's Certificate and a sample of our favorite sustainable chocolate.
* If you really want to leave a lasting legacy, donors who give $5,000 or more will have a street or building named after them (or in anyone's name they choose).
SCP’s work will complement the sustainability work being done by existing cities because those cities will not be able to absorb and support all the people migrating from our coastal communities. Without new sustainable cities, economic disaster – housing shortages, mass unemployment and crippling inflation – will be the result. Building new sustainable cities will ensure our country’s ability to make a smooth transition and protect our country from the turmoil we are facing that risks our economic security. At the same time, our work will drive innovation and investment that creates jobs across dozens of industries at every level of employment ensuring sustainable economic growth and renewed prosperity for our citizens for generations to come.
Achieving our mission will connect people with economic opportunities and deliver clean water, renewable energy, and safe food. Sustainable City Project is reimagining how we must live together and interact with our planet not only to adapt to rising sea levels and population migration but to prosper in the face of these challenges.
