Week 017: Solarpunk Futures

This week we welcomed architecture students from the University of Patras for the first of three seminars on developing more hopeful futures for Athens and the region, using the nascent science fiction genre of Solarpunk as inspiration and framework. I hope to share some more outcomes after we're done, but in the meantime, some links to some of our our reference materials are included below.

If I had one piece of advice for literally everyone, it would be to talk, loudly and frequently and in detail, about the future you want. You can't manifest what you don't share.
