Micah Wells

Co-founder/ Director of SolarPunk Society

Micah studied TV & Media at Hillsong International Leadership College. After college she decided she really wanted to be a painter and she successfully sold her art, and followed another passion, massage therapy and healing, which inspired her to travel to South East Asia where she became a part-owner of a hostel in Cambodia. There she discovered her love for creating community and developed a burning passion to do something positive for people and the planet.

Since she was introduced to Solarpunk art in 2020, Micah has devoted herself to the solarpunk movement by personally backing the SolarPunk Society Magazine, Activatorship, and website. She has become an expert in Solarpunk ideology by researching projects, traveling and interviewing community members about how they are taking action now.
