The socio-techno tool kit for a sustainable future

From social symptom to root causes came about as a bi-product of ZDAY 2013 in London, in which all but the introductory talk featured exterior organisations and speakers. Each of whom seek to address a particular social or environmental issue closely aligned with the movement’s materials.

Exchange of printed materials enforced as “illegal” in Orange County, CA – blocking TZM awareness efforts

Want to exchange a business card with a potential client? Have a movie or a game you wish to share that's on physical media? Have an event flyer you wish to have available for people to take with them? Well think again. As has been recently enforced in Orange County, CA, doing so is breaking the law. Currently being enforced is a local ordinance in which no printed materials of any kind can be exchanged, handed out or otherwise made available between fellow humans in public park areas.

This series came about as a bi-product of ZDAY 2013 in London, in which all but the introductory talk featured exterior organisations and speakers.

The morning after the field trip, I awoke to the sight of the sun cautiously breaking the horizon outside my window; manipulating the sky into an array of bright and fiery colors. I pulled myself out of bed and watched the glow for a few short seconds, and then noticed the moon off to the left, slowly fading into the day time. In a quick motion I set my hand on the window and arranged my thumb and index finger on the moon, pulling them apart to zoom in. The grey sphere enlarged and I could see the ships entering and exiting the lunar docks. My parents had traveled by orbital maglev to the moon two days ago for a vacation after a long work session attempting to create matter without the empty space between the atoms, as a method for drilling to the center of planets. They deserved the time away on the moon.

A shift in social values

A shift in social values

A new member of the Los Angeles chapter (Roberto Tejada) gave his first TZM Townhall presentation this past June 2014. The topic was about a shift in values contrasting the current monetary paradigm with how our values would differ in an NL/RBE. I enjoyed his talk and wanted to share it here.

The following are my comments in regards to "values" following upon the conversation started in this presentation:

A Call to Chapters

A Call to Chapters

There are many TZM activists all over Earth and each and every one of you are celebrated!

What exactly is the difference between an official chapter and a group of activists?

Neither is of more or less value than the other. All of us involved are individual awareness activists. When we organize with others we become a group of activists. There is great benefit that many groups of activists are missing by not connecting with the global network in an official way.
