The first floating city in the world will be built on the Maldives Islands, hosting 20,000 inhabitants.

It will be called Maldives Floating City will have a coral shape and will be completed by 2027, but some residents will start moving as early as 2024. The project, created by real estate developer Dutch Docklands and the Maldives government, has a much more useful and profound goal. compared to that of the simple futuristic experiment.

Maldives: a floating city to combat rising waters
In detail, the area where the Maldives archipelago rises – made up of 1,190 low islands – is among the most exposed and vulnerable to climate change. Consequently, the construction of a large floating city is conceived as a “must-have” and practical solution to combat rising ocean water levels.

“This project can demonstrate that there are affordable housing, large communities and normal cities on the water that are also safe. They (the Maldivians) will move from climate refugees to climate innovators,” Koen Olthuis, founder of Waterstudio, told CNN. .

Inside the floating island will be built houses, schools and shops that will be fixed by stabilizers that support it against the waves while keeping the buildings and structures safe against the current.

25th June (’22): Statehood Day [Slovenia]

Statehood Day (Slovene: Dan državnosti) is a holiday that occurs on every 25 June in Slovenia to commemorate the country’s declaration of independence from Yugoslavia in 1991. Although the formal declaration of independence did not come until 26 June 1991, Statehood Day is considered to be 25 June since that was the date on which the initial acts regarding independence were passed and Slovenia became independent. Slovenia’s declaration jumpstarted the Ten-Day War with Yugoslavia, which it eventually won.

Statehood Day is not to be confused with Slovenia’s Independence and Unity Day, which is celebrated each year on 26 December in honour of 26 December 1990 official proclamation of the results of the plebiscite held three days earlier in which 88.5% of all Slovenian voters were in favor of Slovenia becoming a sovereign nation.

LYRIC

I’m trying to strip off in your mind
Follow the show
You’re gonna fall through desire
Just let it grow
And keep on dancing together
Over the flashlight
Lay down with me to get better
Slowly trick me tonight

Take me to your borderline
I swear that I could love it
There’s no need to be shy
Take me to the other side
Of your sickness story
And your heartless life

Time to play with all my sins
Denying our million lies
Let me see your sweetest dreams
Till we fall in each other’s eyes
Don’t let me go
Before I stopped being confused
It’s time to realize
You need me more than you know
Ain’t got no time to lose
No rules to deny

Take me to your borderline
I swear that I could love it
There’s no need to be shy
Take me to the other side
Of your sickness story
And your heartless life

Oh, take me to your borderline
I swear that I could love it
There’s no need to be shy
Take me to the other side
Of your sickness story
And your heartless life

Borderline
Borderline
Borderline
(Take me to your heartless life)

Borderline
Borderline
Borderline
(Take me your the borderline)
