Hi everyone, Kevin here.

2023 is coming to an end and that's a great opportunity to close it properly. As discussed during our last virtual chalet session, I didn't have the opportunity to present Solarpunk, the design principles and to open a space for a discussion.

So here you are served with two upcoming events 😉👇

Let's celebrate together! 🎉

1. What can designers learn from Solarpunk? 🌱

What can designers learn from Solarpunk? From narratives to principles
What can designers learn from Solarpunk? From narratives to principles

Event details

  • Date: Friday 15 December, 6 PM to 7:30 PM CET
  • Location: Online
  • Duration: 1.5 hours

SolarPunk is relevant to designers for its optimistic hybridisation and a sense of “finding back a form of purpose and meaning”.

In this talk, we will dive into Solarpunk narratives, what they are made of and where they come from. We will come to a set of principles derived from these narratives that designers can harness in their process.

2. Virtual Chalet: A Solar(punk) End of Year ❄️

  • Date: Tuesday 19 December, 6 PM to 7:30 PM CET
  • Location: Online

It is snowing outside. the bio-generator fireplace warms and lightens up the room. Our cosy virtual chalet, on the outskirts of the greenhouse town and built around the magnificent pine tree, is dressed for the celebrations and your host, Kevin, is preparing the Swiss raclette with the solar-powered hoven. Let's celebrate this end of the year together!

Under the tree, we've got some special treats:
