A new dawn is on the horizon, where boundaries are broken, diversity is embraced, and an optimistic, creative vision of our future on Earth takes center stage.
Fear takes us down an unexpected road in EOS, a revolutionary Solarpunk story from author Samantha Redstreake Geary, in collaboration with artist Jenny Vyas, featuring music by Really Slow Motion, and groundbreaking graphics via designer Koke Núñez Gómez! EOS tackles real-world issues concerning terrorism, prejudice, and diversity, to near-future technology surrounding sustainable energy that restores the balance between humanity and nature. This isn’t a defeatist tale. It is a look through the lens of positive futurism that showcases the courage, compassion and capabilities of humanity as equal partners in building a bridge to a better tomorrow.
Solarpunk in an emerging sub-genre of Science Fiction that focuses on an optimistic, innovative vision of our future on Earth. Infused with positive futurism, Solarpunk challenges us to consciously turn away from the defeatist apocalyptic momentum as a global community.
It asks us to stop throwing our hands up and work towards restoring the balance between humanity and nature by transitioning into real world, near-future technology surrounding sustainable energy.
It dares us to defy the powers that be. The world’s most powerful people and corrupt corporations rely on maintaining the status quo. The greatest battle we face is confronting the ingrained greed invested in crippling the environment and controlling lives through a destructive cycle of consumerism. They build communities that use its people, where the value of the individual is directly tied to their profit margin, and opportunities are bound to the amount people bleed to feed the industrial beast.
It demands that we embrace diversity and foster universal respect across all cultures, creeds and chromosomes. Humans intrinsically deserve the support of one another. Every life matters. Everyone is worthy of freedom. A better future should be accessible to all. Prosperity is a right, not a privilege.
We share the fate of this planet. It will take all of us to save it. And if we begin by imagining a better world, no matter how fantastical, anything is possible.
