*Morning coffee musings* Transition / Collapse solutions — how to get most out of collapsing infrastructure. During slo-mo catastrophe, more and more infrastructure may become unused, but still technically working. This is what we have now with empty buildings / apartments for example. Or some abandoned industrial facilities taken over by their crews. But there are more technical challenges. If the grid is down, what shall we need to redirect output of a local wind/solar farm to the local community use? How to start running local rail transport? How to salvage content of a logistic centre before it gets marauded? Etc. etc… The inconvenience here lies in the fact that most of such actions are considered illegal *under regular circumstances*. But we will need them when conditions cease to be "regular". I believe we should be able to discuss them under the general category of "civil / civic defense" or "communal resilience". What do you think?

Hi, We just started a [fundraising campaign]( to buy our first boat, intended as a proof-of-concept for the WartaMAX project. It will be the first boat fully dedicated for Persons With Disabilities (PWDs) here in Poznań (Western Poland). It will also be the beginning of the process to introduce SolarPunk values into local communities across Warta bioregion. See more on slides below. Supporters and interested associates warmly invited! ![]( ![]( ![]( ![](

Solpunk '22 - 26-31 Aug 2022, Denmark
From the event's site: What Is SolPunk?? Solpunk22 is a gathering for anyone interested in creating anything solarpunk with others! Well, what does that actually mean? Is it an un-conference, is it a festival, is it just some punks in a field? We don't know yet, but a wise guess is that punks here are interested in many of the following things: Lowtech and community tech, Energy reduction and renewables, sharing resources, temporary nomadic community, dancing, alternative economy, creating a just future, hackathons, dumpster diving, opensource hardware, software and production, means of care and solidarity, community There was a Solpunk gathering last year, held at the grounds of the Myselium Collective, with workshops about solar panels, scuttlebutt/fediverse, edible wild plants, contact dancing, utopian thinking, dumpster diving, psychedelics, planetary meditations, local alternative history, starlight rave dancing and more and all the connections and meetings happening in between it all. A great opportunity to learn, experience and share. So bring your projects, make a workshop! [Read the flyer](

Move quietly and plant things :)
