5th Annual "Zeitgeist Day" Success! Congratulations to all Chapters!
Five hours of video from "Realizing Human Progress & Sustainability" is now online.
Zday Speakers at this year's Main Event
The 2013 Zeitgeist Day (aka Zday) global awareness weekend had hundreds of events happen in multiple countries & languages across the world on March 16th & 17th. This social/cultural event was themed "Realizing Human Progress & Sustainability" with a focus on expressing the Movement's train-of-thought for public understanding and the evolving of cultural values.
The Main Event happened from 2 - 9pm at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre in Hollywood, CA in front of a sold out crowd of 300 attendees and 8000 webcast viewers. 11 presentations were given during the course of the day by speakers from Italy, UK, Canada and the US. Along with displays on technological unemployment, inflation & hyperinflation, zeitgeist chapters and exhibits like ET3's mock-up mag-lev train compartment and early Global Redesign Institute visualizations.
Presentations ranged from a History of Economic Thought to System's Theory, Social Values present and future, the "Case for Unity" for humanity, Technology, The Transition to a NL/RBE (a Natural Law/Resource Base Economic Model), and much more. All 11 presentations plus the 1-hour Q&A Panel discussion are all posted on TZM's YouTube Channel.
In addition to the Main Event in Los Angeles there where 100's of mirrored events worldwide. They took many shapes and forms from simple internet presentations, to public park meetings, to bannering events. The point is that a global effort occurred centered around the conversation "Realizing Human Progress & Sustainability" and defining the Zeitgeist Movement's train-of-thought.
