Solarpunk is a movement focused on a positive, ecological vision for a future where technology is used for human-centric and ecocentric purposes. It is a literary, artistic and aesthetic sub-genre and is also closely tied to eco-political activism. Solarpunk narratives have a distinctly positive and utopian foundation in contrast to the often dystopian visions found within other "punk" science fiction genres.
Solarpunk is a literary movement, a hashtag, a flag, and a statement of intent about the future we hope to create.

<verb> Colloquial expression;
To 'go with the flow' means to not have a particularly strong opinion on something, and thus follow the majority.

==> First known to be used by the Roman Emperor Marcus Arelius (yes, the one from Gladiator) in his writings 'the Meditations.' Marcus wrote a lot about the flow of thoughts and happiness and he concluded that "most things flow naturally" and in his opinion it was better to "Go with the Flow" than to try and change society.
DUDE: "Hey man!"
MAN: "Yo dude, what's up?"

MAN: "I dunno, dude. I just thought I'd go with the flow rather than dress like a total dickhead, y'know..."
DUDE: "Yeah, I know what you mean, man."
