The Embassy of the North Sea was founded in The Hague the first of June 2018, as a case of the Parliament of Things. The Embassy departs from the starting point that the sea owns itself. Through connection, imagination and representation it makes political space for sea-emancipation. The Embassy researches how non-humans, from phytoplankton to ship wrecks and cod fish – can become full-fledged members of society. In 2019 we will be listening to the North Sea, together with designers, policy makers, biologists, artists, lawyers, philosophers and writers. The Embassy works towards 2030, in which we hope to emotionally, juridically and politically relate ourselves in a fundamentally different way to the sea.
