Hey everyone! starts in 2 weeks, so I just wanted to go over something before people get too far into planning their actions

Remember that is an and 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 :greensun:

It makes me uncomfortable how people have adopted corporate language when talking about themselves on the internet. You are not a corporation or a persona. You are a whole person.

You don't have a "brand" โ€“ you have passions and interests. You don't "create content" โ€“ you share thoughts, words, ideas, knowledge, and a whole galaxy of other things.

There are plenty of people out there who want to categorise you and put you in a box. Don't help them to do this.

You're so much more than that. ๐Ÿ’š

despite all my frustration I am still just a rat in a bus station

Before the rise of industry, it was normal for people to sleep in two phases each night.

People had no set bedtimes. Sleeping was determined by whether or not there were things to do. Most people would have a first and second sleep, with a couple of hours awake inbetween. This is probably the way humans are supposed to sleep.

Modern schedules don't really let us do that. Perhaps we should think about changing that.


not gay as in happy but queer as in i have clinical depression

your daily horoscope: you're getting sick and tired of capitalism

I think we are all eagerly awaiting the day that solarpunk goes mainstream with a best selling book by Chuck Tingle.

doesn't have to be prohibitively expensive! In honor of the patron saint of beekeepers, here's a plan for a top-bar you can build out of a 55gal barrel and some pallet wood, plus a guide for trapping your own from nature! Happy Valentine's Day ๐Ÿ



Would it be presumptuous or self-aggrandizing of me to replace the first image on this page with :greensun:? I mean, my symbol is being used by lots of people, people are making patches, getting variations made, printing stickers, using it in their avatars, putting it in messaging...

I've never seen anyone talk about "Green Sunshine," and when I see it I'm like "oh that's solarpunkcast's icon" and then sometimes I go "wait isn't it the symbol for the subreddit too?" but I never think "this hue-shifted stock sun symbol represents solarpunk to me." It's not unique or eye-catching enough to represent a movement or a genre tbh

And I don't want to make myself seem super important or anything, I just really like that I'm contributing to giving solarpunk a bit of a stronger identity I guess? I'm proud of that! And I think getting this symbol spread more can help solarpunk become more recognizable

What does everyone think?
