Z-Day is our biggest event of the year. Its aim is to gather together different like-minded organizations in order to create a vibrant and meaningful discussion on the problems that afflict our current society and their root causes; analyzing them with a systemic approach and not just focusing on specific issues. The single issues are merely expressions of the same root cause: the current socio-economic system. This system needs to be radically transformed because it has become totally decoupled from meeting basic human needs: food, water, shelter and a sustainable ecosystem. Together we will analyze alternatives and insights in order to arrive at solutions: parallel structures, resilient systems and a more caring social organization. Change will not happen overnight, it is a step by step process that will outgrow the current structure by creating new ones, disconnected at first, but that will reach each other by eroding and taking over the old system. On Z-Day we will bridge some gaps, by making new connections among organizations and most importantly among PEOPLE. The Change has already begun, come and join us for a day of Collaboration, Discovery and Community.
12:00 | Event start. FOODSHARE: The idea is for everybody to bring some food and share it freely with everybody. It's a good way to get to know each other and have a little banter before the presentations starts. 3D PINTER SHOWCASE: Considered as the foremost example of the home manufacturing revolution, 3D Printers have gathered momentum over the last few years, getting exponentially better and increasingly cheaper. Here you'll have the opportunity to check out their potential yourselves. BOTH ACTIVITIES WILL GO ON FOR THE WHOLE DURATION OF THE EVENT.
12:45 | Introductory speech. A little introduction about The Zeitgeist Movement ideas and purposes, description of the event and introduction of the first speaker.
13:00 | Presentation: The Evolution of Education by Sanjin Dedic. Brief history of public education from the Prussian model, to Taylorism, to the current state: the training of obedient workers. Followed by an outlook on how current technologies can empower people in pursuing their own personal educational paths.
In order to break even with the costs of venue and equipment hire, we decided to have a Contribution Fee of 9.99$ for participation. Tickets are available through our MeetUp Group: meetup.com/zeitgeistmovementmelb/
Tickets will be available at the door on the day of the event but given the limited capacity of the venue we suggest you to book them in advance.
