Newsletter – December 2018

Here’s a small summary of what’s been happening in The Zeitgeist Movement and related groups since August when the last newsletter was sent.

Zday 2019 Argentina

Zday 2019 Argentina Crowdfunding campaign

The 2019 global Zday event will be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  This is the first main event in Latin America and we are looking for help! In order to cover the costs of a real time translator without making the cost of the event prohibitively expensive, volunteers have launched a crowdfunding campaign. We’ve raised $1,300 of the required USD $2,000 so far.
You can donate at https://gogetfunding.com/zday-2019-main-event-buenos-aires/

Check out and share the incredible video they put together to make this happen:

With quality that good, you know the event will be worth it. Anything you are able to contribute will be appreciated and welcome! Here’s the facebook event page to throw on your calendar:

Common Heritage Pledge

Common Heritage Pledge

As part of the awesome work that Erykah Sundance has been doing in getting the post-scarcity, post-monetary groups together The Zeitgeist Movement has signed the Common Heritage pledge.

https://www.commonheritage.us/

The pledge in its final form:

I declare the Earth as the Common Heritage for all life.

I support a global transition to a system based on science and the Earth’s capacity to sustain us. Replacing resource competition, money/trade and private property with sharing earth’s resources, goods, services, technology, and knowledge.

In this system, I pledge to freely contribute my skills and motivations with my time and labor, to serve a community that serves me, that fulfills my basic needs, and does not subjugate me in any way.

I do this with the knowledge that others will too, and hereby affirm my commitment for co-creating a better world for me, and for all.

You can learn more at the Common Heritage website or view the final document.

A Picture of Transition | Andrew Drummond | ZDay 2018 London

“A Picture of Transition” looks at several looming economic crises in energy and resource overshoot, challenges that we will face in transitioning to a renewably-powered circular economy, social adaptations that need to be made, how they can improve quality of life, and with case studies, shows how you can get this ball rolling in your local community, making almost anything from almost nothing.
