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.

Contact, call, get in touch. It can also mean 'call out to get someone's attention'. The word is used in the Australian expression 'give (someone) a hoy'.
"I'l be working in the next room. Give us a hoy when you're finished packing these boxes."

"If you have any questions, just give me a hoy on my mobile."

"As soon as I find out more information, I'll give you a hoy."

1. What Filipinos use to call someone's attention. Usually said in a loud voice. Similar to Hey!, only with greater force.

2. Norse word meaning "high island", Hoy is one of the Orkney Islands, which is near Britain.

Whoever who said Holla, please. Hoy is way more better because hoy is MUCH MORE Filipino, rather than Holla, which is severely retarded.

Heh heh heh, conform to ghetto azn STYLE </sarcasm>. HAH.
1. Hoy Jimbo! Uwi!

2. I'd like to visit Hoy.

The Filipino way of saying "Hey!" but can be expressed sometimes in objection, if you're going to call someone's attention (negatively or positively).
Hoy! Andito ako! (Hey! I'm over here!)
Hoy, gaga ka! Sino may sabi sayong nadapa ako sa kanto?! (Hey, you idiot! Who told you I tripped at the corner?!)

It is shorted language or "slang" for "you are welcome". It is common to hear the reply of "Hoy" after you say Cheers. It is often heard in the trendier part of London and other metropolitan cities in the United Kingdom. The term originated in Wales but has been adapted by the savvy trend setters in Metropolitan London.
Me: Next pint is on me.
You: Cheers!
Me: Hoy!
