The global Zeitgeist Movement is holding its annual Zeitgeist Day event again, with the Canberra event being held this Saturday 17th March. It runs from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm, lecture theatre 5, Manning Clark Centre, Australian National University.
What is Zeitgeist Day or ZDay 2012?
“Zeitgeist Day”, or ZDAY for short, is an annual, global event day which occurs in the middle of March, each year. The goal is to increase public awareness of The Zeitgeist Movement and its goals and tenets.
In 2009, we had over 450 events in over 70 countries. These events were well documented by news agencies across the world, including the New York Times in America. In 2010 and 2011 we averaged about 300+ events each year.
The afternoon’s three part program incorporates presentations, short films, multimedia and audience discussion around the themes of sustainability, social change, law, technology and community development.
What is the Zeitgeist Movement?
A global sustainability advocacy group of over 1,000 chapters, is spreading awareness of new economic & socially progressive ideas which seek to reform methods and perceptions in the interest to create a truly progressive, sustainable, peaceful, global society. By applying the scientific method to social concern, its core focus is to bring about a responsible, mature, humane and sustainable socio-economic system, known as a “Resource-Based Economic Model” where the world’s resources are declared the heritage of all people (not just a greedy few) and manufacturing is Measured against the carrying capacity of the Earth, not how profitable it is.
Finally, Consider this.
Under a monetary system, debt, poverty, crime, war, collusion, greed, corruption, cyclical consumption, planned obsolescence, lawful slavery (an oxymoron), environmental degradation, lying and deception, and more, will not significantly change. Why? Because they are profitable; good for business.
Stated simply, sickness, waste, pollution, war, crime, and other dysfunctions, are all good for “economic growth”.
We have the science, We have the technology, We have the Internet.
Get Educated! Get Inspired! Get Involved!
We cannot move forwards by staying where we are!
