Solarpunk and Lunarpunk


Across the globe, you can find many cities and societies that have a distinct culture of their own.

Most places can be either seen as Solarpunk, Lunarpunk or a mix between the two. There are subtle and not-so-subtle differences between the them.

Solarpunk: These areas tend to be more active during the day, with bright colors and earth tones found everywhere. The vegetation found here is extremely varied, though the most common types tend to be grasses to moderate size trees. Solar panels will be a common occurrence, found on houses to cable cars to church windows. Vertical and Roof gardens are abound, making buildings look like organisms of their own. 

Most Solarpunk places tend to be cities and villages, with a strong sense of place, forming a bond with one’s environment. 

Examples: Ecopolis (Cascadia), Aro City (Igboland), Honolulu (Kingdom of Hawaii)

Lunarpunk: These communities are obviously more active during the night. They compliment dark colors with neon bright lights, which shine in the night. Vegetation would be varied extremes, with some places having little to non, while others would have towering trees that block out the light. Wind power and Hydrogen cells would be the main source of power here. Their infrastructure would have a lot more tech on it, such as glowing signs.

Generally Lunarpunk communities tend to be nomadic fleets or big cities, holding individuality and expression in a high place.

Examples: Brille (France), Hong Kong, Bajau Nomads
