Solarpunk

Solarpunk is a movement in speculative fiction, art, fashion and activism that seeks to answer and embody the question ?what does a sustainable civilization look like, and how can we get there?? The aesthetics of solarpunk merge the practical with the beautiful, the well-designed with the green and wild, the bright and colorful with the earthy and solid. Solarpunk can be utopian, just optimistic, or concerned with the struggles en route to a better world ? but never dystopian. As our world roils with calamity, we need solutions, not warnings. Solutions to live comfortably without fossil fuels, to equitably manage scarcity and share abundance, to be kinder to each other and to the planet we share. At once a vision of the future, a thoughtful provocation, and an achievable lifestyle.

In progress?

We have received DMs from quite a few people who wanted to get into solarpunk but didn?t find it very accessible after looking at the results of the google search.

The links below are an attempt to open up the optics of the solarpunk community for newcomers and others looking for references . A lot of the early discussions happened on tumblr from 2014 onward after Miss Olivia Louise?s character concept post took off ? with a core community of stewards who know who they are.

What follows is not meant to be an exhaustive list but hopefully will increasingly become one. We?re also aware that we are missing almost all of the art references from this list. 🙁

We included our first post from 2012 at solarpunks.tumblr.com

Please get in touch with art references as a lot of content has lost their attribution ? Jay

Solarpunk?s optimism towards the future is the first concept that needs complicating here. Along with the original punks, there is a wide body of scholarship that critiques positive thinking. Feminists like Barbara Ehrenreich and Sara Ahmed, for instance, trace links between the capitalist establishment and happiness. They suggest that future-centred optimism serves the very system raged against by most punks of old.

?Solarpunk also conflates modern technology with older technology, but with a vital difference. In the case of steampunk, the focus on Victorian technology serves as a guideline for imagining an alternative world. In the case of solarpunk, the interest in older technologies is driven by modern world economics:

In recent years, the term cli-fi has moved from a fringe concept to a marketable genre of fiction. Coined in the first instance by a PR guy in Taiwan, it has grown so big that scholarly researchers are now able to produce studies of the genre?s conventions. In addition, new novels and short story collections are now published in this genre category each year.?

Solarpunk, the Hufflepuff of ?punks, is a mini-genre of speculative fiction that focuses on an eco-friendly utopian future ? lush green cityscapes, sustainable technology, diverse fashion and architecture, and an essentially hopeful view of humanity?s impact on the world. I love bleak cyberpunk dystopias as much as the next girl, but this EPCOT-like vision of sustainable city life is both optimistic and attainable.

https://tigermanifesto.wordpress.com/2017/10/17/new-series-solarpunk-and-the-aesthetics-of-optimism/

Not only is solarpunk supposed to inspire real activism and practical solutions to environmental and social problems, its proponents are also, at this stage, highly activist about this nascent subgenre. There is even a manifesto for it. So although it is a literary and artistic tendency first and foremost, many of the authors we?ll be encountering in this new series inject far loftier ambitions. While this seems appropriate given the defiant can-do-it attitude of solarpunk, it also generates a set of interesting questions:
