Event Details

"Zeitgeist Day", or Zday for short is an annual global educational symposium that works to amplify a context upon which existing/emerging scientific findings may find a concerted social imperative aiming to create a more truly responsible, sustainable, peaceful, global society. This year’s theme in London is based heavily on activism, what a person can set in motion, whether individually, collectively, directly and indirectly. There will be a number of inspiring talks throughout the day.


 


“Fixing politics” by David Wood

Why has political discussion become so divisive and unpleasant? And what can be done to ensure that the best opinions of the electorate are heard and recognised, instead of being drowned out by the loudest voices and the most powerful vested interests? This talk outlines a technoprogressive transhumanist vision of a sustainable future, along with a roadmap of actions needed to progress towards that vision.


“Activist Wellbeing & Maintenance: Looking after ourselves whilst looking out for the rest of the world” by Adam Drage.

In a talk that endeavours to address the dreaded burn-out, I look at why we must first look after the health and wellbeing of ourselves in order to be able to care for the health and wellbeing of humanity and the planet. And, explore ideas of how we might build, and nourish, a culture of more healthy and sustainable activism, in the midst of an insane system.


Jay Groovara – Singer Songwriter. Lumbersexual

Singer songwriter Jay Groovara writes folk rock songs and given 3 ideas he will improvise you a new song: often with humor or political undertones, reflecting a need for better times, without poverty and war. 

For Z-Day 2017, he will sing about the detriments of monetarism.

 ‘I cant see any future if people wont accept we’re heading for that proverbial iceberg’- he says. ‘This Shits gotta go’ 


"Cage Floor Sketches: Critiquing and Transforming London's Communities" by Kyle Farren

This talk will deal with some of the social and ecological problems facing London today, while introducing some of the techniques Londoners can use to solve these problems including community organising, Theatre of the Oppressed and principled negotiation. Mainly focusing on London, Kyle will also explore problems, which affect other cities too including propaganda, terrorism and exploitation.


"Activation Energy: A call to Self-Igniting social change" by Adam Antium

This talk will address the psychological resistance and hesitance to creating positive change, what bred these limitations, and use principles of personal growth to empower the audience. To overcome said obstacles and get involved. To use the fuel of your passion as a propellant to escaping the comfort zone.  Taking the action necessary to be part of the solution is easier than we thought.


"Science Simplified" by Teemu Koskimaki

I will explore the philosophy and history of science to explain what it is all about, and show that there is a reason why science is so often talked about in the movement materials. I will explore what the role of science is in a resource based economy and how science relates to The Zeitgeist Movement.
