Hey everyone! #SolarpunkActionWeek starts in 2 weeks, so I just wanted to go over something before people get too far into planning their actions
Remember that #solarpunk is an #anticapitalist and #antiauthoritarian movement. If you support sustainability, but you don't recognize that an end to consumerism, exploitation, and hierarchy is necessary for that to happen, you're not solarpunk, you're just green
We won't be accepting submissions that involve campaigning for any political candidate or making an excessively consumerist purchase (i.e. buying a Tesla wouldn't be accepted, buying a bike and selling your car would; buying a portable solar panel for hiking trips wouldn't, but buying a small solar panel setup to get your apartment off-grid would). Use your common sense and we'll use ours
Once again, we're available to answer any questions you have, either about these rules or just helping with your action! Happy planning
Sunbeam City is a anticapitalist, antifascist solarpunk instance that is run collectively.
