It's too easy to imagine the end of the world. 

Much easier, sometimes, than imagining a pathway to a better world.

That's why we made Solarpunk Futures — to practice collective visioning about our real-world struggles for a better world through a mix of sincerity, laughter, and creative storytelling.

Solarpunk Futures is a 10-minute rules-light role-playing game where players imagine the pathways to a desirable world from the perspective of a utopian future. Through dialogue and collaborative worldbuilding, collective and visionary narratives emerge of a new society, along with plausible scenarios for how to get there.

Players use a deck of cards to adopt Ancestors (e.g. grower, engineer) and work together using Tools (e.g. upcycled materials, equipment library, off-grid energy) and Values (e.g. care, responsibility, usufruct) to overcome a set of real-world Challenges (e.g. borders, ableist infrastructure, climate refugee crisis).
