I think #solarpunk writing, like a lot of sci-fi, isn't made special by the technologies it believes in, but by the people it believes in. That is, by an ideology of hope, a fond glance toward the future.

In other words, I don't think #solarpunk writing should focus only on how we're going to survive the future, but WHY we should.

Also, #solarpunk should examine not only physical, material technologies, but sustainable cultural and emotional technologies


@MordecaiPinhas I think that the core of is not in the technology at all. It's ethics and aestetics. Why and how, not in the literal sense often but on the social level.
