Join us for a 2-month pop-up city to explore the foundation of Vitalia - a permanent city where we can live healthier longer lives, and accelerate progress towards making death optional.
It will harbour renegade life scientists, artists, biotechnology engineers and an entrepreneurially driven community of people that love life and want to see the future.
January 6 - March 1, 2024 on the Caribbean island of Roatan.
This was spawned into existence out of Vitalik Buterin’s pop-up city in Montenegro, Zuzalu.city.
WHY VITALIA MATTERS 🤔
Longevity is the defining question of humanity.
However, biotech R&D and commercial use are chronically underfunded and slow, due to legacy regulatory systems that lock in old solutions and create bottlenecks for new ones.
Solutions such as medical reciprocity, sunset clauses and right-to-try legislation are only distant ideas - the status quo is hard-coded into the fabric of society through strict legislation.
However, startup cities and network states, as well as smaller jurisdictions are promising to change the game by developing more permissive, common law-based alternatives.
This group believes we can utilize Special Economic Zones and medical hubs in Latin American countries, to build a multi-jurisdictional longevity-focused network state.
VISION FOR THIS FIRST POPUP CITY 🏝️
We aim to bring 100+ biotech and healthcare-focused entrepreneurs, scientists and enthusiasts together for 2 months on Roatan to live together, work together and set the foundations for an epic mission to rejuvenate the world.
