Hello everyone! For my bachelor’s thesis, I am making a survey to find out what Solarpunks think of the movement, the genre and the community. I believe Solarpunks are often curious about the thoughts of others in the community, so I think this could be another instance to promote discussion and interesting conversations within the community. Once the survey is closed, I’ll distribute the key findings within the communities where I initially posted the survey (so, here, in the r/solarpunk subreddit, etc). It takes around 9 minutes and it would be great if we get a lot of responses. It is also anonymous and under the supervision of my tutors. If this sounds like something that interests you, please fill it in and share it with other Solarpunks! And if you still have questions I am happy to answer them, but there is also more information available in the first part of the survey!

I think there is a link already in the post but just in case: click here

(btw, I sadly wont be gathering data from people under 18 years old. This is because consent-wise it gets tricky, not because I don’t value your input. Thank you very much for understanding!)

    I got into solarpunk mostly because I’m too butch for cottagecore, but I might be too granny to satisfy the punk requirements. I wanna stay on my couch and knit, you guys, I’m so tired.

      Hahahaha I feel called out. Also, ‘Too butch for cottagecore, too granny for punk’ is a perfect slogan for Solarpunk

    The last section with the “agree” 1-5 is a bit confusing as the “agree” is where the 1 is. But assumed 5 means agree more.

      i’ve voted with 5 as more and 1 as less, iirc it was written right in the section (even tho as you said there is also ‘‘agree’’ on the 1 so idk lol)

          I took further right to be agree more and further left to be less agreement when I responded (in case it helps with data interpretation).

      Oh im sorry about that :( Yeah if it was for me I would try to have a way of doing it but considering it is online and anonymous it really gets messy with consent.

    Why did you leave the A off of LGBTQIA+?

    I’m not offended, just curious if it was a typo, or shorthand. Generally LGBT+ or LGBTQIA+ are acceptable, but leaving the A off can appear like a deliberate jab at Asexuals.
