Resources for the Town of Merveilles.
Get in Touch
We chose to align ourselves with that of the #solarpunk movement.
A demand for technology and society to re-center around sustainability, longevity, and balance with an emphasis on renewable energy.
A focus on decentralization, community activism, social justice, and civic empowerment.
A recognition that economic, social, and ecological injustices are all deeply interconnected.
We want to keep the instance small. The aim of the Town is to facilitate a discussion on the various projects created by members of the Merveilles community. To cover for hosting and maintenance, we suggest making a donation to allow for Somnius to dedicate time to keeping the instance working. Any surplus will be used to improve the platform and give back to the underlying projects.
- One must respect the Code of Conduct.
- One must remember the Three Gates Of Speech.
