Nowhereisland is a new nation declared on behalf of its citizens.

Nowhereisland’s territory originated from an island newly revealed by a retreating glacier in the High Arctic archipelago of Svalbard. Nowhereisland is established in response to the failure of nation states to adequately address interconnected global crises, such as environmental exploitation. The island’s territory crossed into international waters north of Svalbard on 20th September 2011.

Nowhereisland seeks to redefine what a nation can be. Nowhereisland embodies the global potential of a new borderless nation, which offers citizenship to all; a space in which all are welcome and in which all have the right to be heard. Nowhereisland’s constitution is and will be cumulative and consensual, open to all citizens and subject to change during the nation’s lifetime.

Nowhereisland is a displaced nation journeying south in search of its people.
