Solarpunk Sunscapes: Optimistic Visions of the Future 0

Fledgling Listing: This project is new and has been listed with us for less than six months.

About

In addition to hopeful and optimistic solarpunk stories in general, I’m looking for a wide variety of things. I’m looking for stories that take place on land and on sea, underground and up in the air (or space), as well stories that take place in geographically diverse places and communities across the planet. I’m looking for stories that highlight unique solutions and challenges in those different types of places or in different parts of the world. I’m looking for stories about how future societies have solved, overcome, and/or adapted to climate change and how those solutions are led by and put marginalized communities front and center. I’m looking for Afrofuturism, Amazofuturism, etc (#ownvoices). I’m looking for stories with characters who are demographically diverse (BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, people with disabilities, different religions, geographical regions, etc) and how those identities shape their visions of the future. It’s also wonderful for demographically diverse people to just exist in your story. The theme or plot don’t need to center around identity. I’m looking for stories about how other species live and survive and view the world in the future, and how they interact with future human communities. I’m looking for stories about racial justice, migration, anti-authoritarianism, animal rights, and fascinating futuristic technology that helps us meet the climate challenge and build a better world. I’m also looking for solarpunk stories that aren’t mentioned on this short list of possibilities. And of course, I’m always looking for stories with great character development, and stories with compelling conflict and tension even amidst a better and more utopian world.
