Solarpunk and Sidmouth

To what extent can an ‘old-fashioned’, ‘bygone-days’ place like Sidmouth be considered as a place where Solarpunk sits naturally?

It can be argued very strongly that Solarpunk sits very naturally in these parts:

Solarpunk is alive and well in the Sid Valley! – Vision Group for Sidmouth

.

Solarpunk is about the look and feel of a place – and the Sid Valley’s architectural traditions fit very well:

One recent project shows how the past can be reinvented in a vibrant and lively way:

Friends of Glen Goyle – A Vision Group for Sidmouth initiative

.

Solarpunk is very much about being creative – with another new project focussing on bringing heritage and art together:

Digital and creative now dominate the economy – Vision Group for Sidmouth

.

Digital is at the heart of the new Working From Home ethos in Devon:

.

The economy has to be thinking creatively and responsibly:

Fundamentally, Solarpunk is about sustainability – and Sidmouth has been a Transition Town since 2010:
