Solarpunk: Project Sunrise

Project Sunrise is about connecting and bringing together an unique group of experts and leaders from a broad range of disciplines with the aim to build a community with a common agenda and develop the outlines of a future series of Solarpunk-themed immersive events in Gouda.

Solarpunk is a Climate-Fiction (“Cli-Fi”) movement in speculative design, 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?”1. Solarpunk is about envisioning a future where humans, nature, and technology coexist in harmony. It rejects the apocalyptic views of cyberpunk and the industrial nostalgia of steampunk. It’s ethos can also be summarized as “move slowly and plant things”. Solarpunk paints a future in which tech is done right, instead of gone wrong. In Solarpunk narratives communities are the main protagonists, thereby placing collectivism at its heart instead of today’s dominant individualism and going beyond circular economies towards to regenerative societies.
