What is Solarpunk?
“Solarpunk is better characterized as a kaleidoscopic manifesto, an argument in story and image, the song of a community both inchoate and coalescing, simultaneously committed and finding its feet… Here’s to the light”
The Solarpunk Manifesto published in 2019 is a creative re-adaptation of ideas about solarpunk written by many people.
The Systems Change Club on Clubhouse is a great resource to follow if you are more of an auditory learner. Join one of the regular solarpunk rooms to learn and contribute as we explore ways to reach aspirational, realistic futures via systems change.
Listen to the latest episode of Talking with Green Teachers Podcast on eco-anxiety and solarpunk:
Solarpunk is not about denial or naive optimism. We are highly aware of the urgent, global challenges we face, but solarpunk is about hope in action. It is about refusing to give up and taking matters into our own hands to actively create the future we do want. That’s the “punk” in solarpunk.
What’s the alternative? We are on the brink of evolution or extinction. Let’s reach higher. Let’s rewrite the story of humanity and create a world all generations deserve. Let’s use all we have to speak it into existence.
