Zeitgeist Movement Presents
We are proud to be working in partnership with the Zeitgeist Movement Australia, who will be curating and running a series of workshops and short film screenings each day of the festival as part of the Symposium. The sessions will be curated according to the days elemental theme. We will be discussing what’s important, what’s to come, what we can do and how to create a global shift, towards a Natural-Law, Resource-Based Economy.
The Zeitgeist Movement is a global sustainability group which encourages a holistic approach towards the world’s problems in order to create a healthy, abundant future for everyone. The philosophy is underpinned by the understanding that unnecessary immense suffering in the world in the form of war, poverty, pollution, homelessness, starvation and environmental degradation are not only the results of political policies, greed, or a fight for resources, but are in fact born of an outdated social structure. The money/market system runs through the veins of this structure, incentivising corruption, psychopathic behaviour and selfishness at all levels. Systemic problems require systemic solutions.
Our partners at The Zeitgeist Movement share a common goal of unity, proposing a new way forward, where we challenge our commonly held values, beliefs and assumptions, based on our ever growing understanding of the natural world. Our process is based on a healthy balance of open mindedness and vigorous skepticism. We acknowledge that human theories about the world have the capacity to be flawed and need constant revision.
