Solarpunk - Anyone heard of it?

Hej peeps, i just recently stumbled upon the Solarpunk Movement Solarpunk - Wikipedia

I feel really connected to the story they tell and the overall vision… Is what we do as a collective already moving towards it? Can it be a blueprint story for transformation away from capitalism?

@MalteLarsen I was just at a solarpunk gathering in Denmark called SolPunk earlier this month. You will have to come to the next one! which I think will be next year… it sounded tentatively like somewhere in Germany…

when I thought solarpunk was just an art movement, I wasn’t that convinced (just one more thing to give a name?), but as I’ve met more people who try to embody and live in solarpunk ways, I feel inspired by it again.

The SolPunk festival ran entirely on solar power, and we ate mostly dumpster-dived food. One person there also insisted on only drinking coffee they made from water from the pond heated over a fire, which I thought was nice next to all the “high tech” visions.

I think the Biopunk-community, mycology, and solarpunk all have a big overlap.

Here are some pictures from SolPunk of dumpster-dived food + setting up a local internet:

Just found this biopunk short movie… I guess the difference of solar- and biopunk is obviously the “post society as we know it” - scenario: https://vimeo.com/220429743
