work title: SOLARPUNK[edit | edit source]

is a 'label' people are using to find a narrative for a brighter future ("solar") while deliberately subverting the systems that keep that brighter future from happening ("punk").

This means, there are different 'definitions of what this would be, but the common ground is to build narratives to envision a future that is more equal, collaborative, peaceful, tolerant, decentralised where all species have a place to live.

" Cyberpunk is often married to dystopia because of how it began—in the west it spawned from the Cold War, Reaganomics, and the perceived threat of an Orientalized, globalized future. But the reality is that modern life unironically buys into cyberpunk tropes of tech-fueled consumerism and corporate supremacy."

Ultimately, the way we portray fictional futures has a real impact on pop culture and our imaginations.

"When all we see are bleak gritty cyberpunk realities, it becomes a kind of self-fulfilling prophecy, where this is the only way we know to imagine the future," Shalloway explains. And as climate change and sustainability become critically urgent issues, more people have become vocal about the need for something different. And that alternative is solarpunk: a vibrant young genre that focuses on sustainability, innovation, open-source technology, and collective action."
