Revision of Seychelles's future: An eco-tourism prototype
The non-gradual and rapid increase of the effects of global climate change on small islands all over the world is very critical. Sea level rising has serious impacts on small islands such as Seychelles, Maldives, and the city of Venice. These islands have already started to drown making their near future obscure. Globally, the consequences of climate change are clear evidence that our cities and countries will not survive anymore. As we experience global climate change, do we adapt to new conditions or invent responses to prevent changes of our physical environment and affect our diverse cultural experiences? By considering island communities, we may better understand the consequence of climate change and discover opportunities for future strategies to enable island communities to thrive. To best understand how to construct these strategies, an early and mid-twentieth century urban utopia projects, such as the Metabolism Movement and the work of Richard Buckminster Fuller, are studied. These projects do not only respond to the future needs of cities and people, but also offer a framework to explore Seychelles Islands as a prototype for possible ideal and cultural societies to adapt to the effects of climate change.
