Global Issue


The water is going to redefine our future. By 2050, sea level will get 16 cm more than today. Despite critical role that water has in our everyday lives, people have realised that the world’s fresh water supply is facing a major crisis in near future. With a billion more people to feed on the year 2050 and increasing industrialization and standards of living, living cost and freshwater demand continue to grow. Every 20 seconds, a child die from water they are drinking. Hence, there is a heavy demand of fresh water supply especially to area like Africa.


Sea(phera) intend to be a sustainable answer by preserving the fresh water at estuary and seacoast. In year 2050, most of the people in a country like Africa and India will be able to desalinate water by having their sea(phera) which is their dwelling at the same time to testify of its interest for a better environment and their own self.

The system harvests the abundant supply of sea water, in return processing a desalinated fresh water, energy and income through harvested salt. Dualism approach was applied to promote the community type of living in order to preserve more existing fresh water in seacoast and estuary.
