Introduce yourself 👋

Hi Sean,

Welcome! There is, but there is no contact signed up here on the forum. So that’s why there is no marker on the map with a forum group. If someone (maybe you) wants to be the point of contact for that chapter, then we can create the forum group and add it to the map.

You can come in contact with TZM Scotland via their Facebook group:

Hello!
My name is Elaine. Im looking for a Chapter here in Atlanta, GA, are there any here in the state or near my state?
If not, I would like to learn how to create a Chapter here.

Hi Elaine, welcome to the forum! I found this Facebook page and contacted the admin. I asked him/her to signup on the forum and leave an intro about him/herself and some details about the chapter. With that info I can create a forum group and a map marker. Then people can easily find and contact the Atlanta chapter :slight_smile:

Let’s see if that person comes in contact with me and signs up here. If not, then we can organize an online meeting where I can give you some quick pointers on how to start and manage a chapter. :tada: I’ll DM you if that’s the case. How does that sound?

hi my name is Monique and I’m new here. I watched the documentaries & read up on the movement a little, I’m so inspired by it all. I think the idea makes so much sense and I can’t stop thinking about it. I’m a mom of 5 in Ohio and work 3rd shift. I don’t have a lot of money. but I wanna know someone like me can help. Im somewhat social media savvy and my kids also really love the idea of this. I wanna see this in my children’s future. I love it. but I have no clue what to do…any suggestions would be awesome ! nice to be here everyone :grinning:

Hi @iwannahelp22, welcome to the forum! And awesome to hear you would like to get involved. I’d recommend to first watch the orientation guide to get a detailed understanding of the train of thought.

It may be the easiest to talk this through “face to face” via an online meet. @ENCH is from Atlanta and @hoppy is from Scotland, they had a similar question. Perhaps it would be fun to combine this into an online meeting? I’ll ask some people from the @chapter_netherlands to join as well so they can share their experiences and thoughts.

I’ll get back in a week with some date suggestions.

yeah that sounds great just let me know when :slight_smile:

In case anyone else is interested in an online face to face meeting:

Hi all🙋‍♂️

I am a student of class 10 from Bangladesh. Teenager so field with fire :fire: so I can give my best on whatever I think as worth it​:triumph:…

I had dream from childhood to see trust among all, happiness, no problems of money and etc. I always wondered how can I make my dream into a reality, spend many hours on thinking that, searching, educating myself on many topics etc. Recently found out that Jacque Fresco also had my dream from childhood and he already dedicated his life on Venus Project to create that dream world. I can’t find any ways to support his project and found out that I can work on building my dream world by working as a zeitgeist activist. So now I am here working for my dream.

Inshallah we all will reach out goal of creating a great world for out next generations😊.
Have a great day, salam (peace be upon you):heart:

@Kees is the first one I got to know here😅

Awesome! Again, welcome to the forum and TZM! :tada: I’ve created the group @chapter_bangladesh and added the chapter to the map :slight_smile: In the near future we will upgrade the map to a new design and possibly also an email address where people may contact your chapter.

Remember you can always start a chapter :nerd_face: Having a listing here on the forum or not doesn’t change that. We’re a grassroots movement, this forum has no authority to grant or revoke the right of starting a chapter. You may be already aware of this, just making sure :slight_smile:

Yeah, I know that :sweat_smile: I was just very excited to see that how many people want to create the best version of this world. Before knowing Jacque Fresco and Peter Joseph I had my dream to do that. And I always thought how to make it reality. This screenshot is one example :joy::sweat_smile:


Whenever I told anyone about my dream most of them just laughed away and told that it’s impossible. I believed in my hart that it’s possible. Even if we reach it or not, working for that is a MUST! I was upset on how no one I talked to doesn’t had any dreams at all, none even wanted any good for society, They just think of their having a good life, good job, house, cars, money… Had zero person giving me any hope… I was afraid would I find anyone or not, can I do anything alone or not… Though I knew I can’t live my life not working on my dream, so I go on with whatever I can do Than found Jacque Fresco and Peter Joseph and many others already believed in my dream and also gone through a lot of years of hard work making us more closer to our goal. Now with so many ones having the same dream and having so many materials I will be invincible :fire::sunglasses::joy:
So yeah I was really happy to find the community :blush:
Have a great day, salam🙋‍♂️

I don’t want to be annoying :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:, but it would really be useful for us if in all the countries where Spanish is the main language, the name of the Spanish-Speakers Meta-chapter, or at least the same website (https://movimientozeitgeist.com), appeared. :pray:t4: I explained some of that here: Global TZM chapters map (introduce yourself) - #12 by DiegoJujuy

The Chapter Venezuela, for example, does not exist, and the person who manages the Facebook page that appears on the map lives in Chile and currently prefers the individualistic ideology of the Austrian School. :face_exhaling:

@Darwin_Vasquez , the only person on this forum who is listed as belonging to the Chapter Venezuela, is actually actively participating in the Meta-chapter.

Hi @DiegoJujuy! People have the ability to leave and join other forum groups. So if they prefer the meta chapter, then they can join that one. It’s also possible to join multiple forum groups. I think it wouldn’t hurt to remain a member of your local chapter while being part of a meta, since local activism is very effective. The term chapter also means a “local branch”.

I’m working on a new chapters map. If there are no members of a chapter, it will unlist automatically. However, this new map also does not have support for meta chapters. It’s just very hard to illustrate such a thing on a map. But the website will be open-source, so if someone has ideas about that, then feel free to contribute. An idea would be to create an extra overlay for meta’s,that way it doesn’t become too crowded. But I still don’t know how to draw something like that. Maybe a colored outline for countries to show which is part of which meta. But how to deal with overlaps. Spain e.g. could be part of the Spanish speaking meta, but also part of some kind of European meta in the future.

I had to rename the meta chapter to meta_hispanic, this is due to the character limit talked about last year. I’ve reset it back to 20. This is due to some formatting issues and to be in sync with the upstream project’s settings. The full name of the group is still “Meta chapter hispanic”, only the tag was renamed.

As already mentioned in the forum chat, we have a new interactive map! :tada:

I’ve spent some time creating a new TZM chapters map. We had one in the past, but it went offline. This new map is fully based on open-source software and is as decentral as we can be. Chapters have to be created on the forum, but people can add and remove themselves as they like. This reflects the principles of our movement as well. I think chapters are key for our movement to do effective activism. It allows us to organize on a local grassroots level, and a map like this allows us to interact globally together via the Internet. Sharing ideas and progress, which inspires more change.

The chapters may not be that active anymore, but I think it still is key in the movement’s success. Local activism builds up a different kind of presence and it also allows friendships to be built.

Awesome! Welcome to the forum! :tada: I see you already made yourself at home here by joining the Canadian chapter, very nice! Good to have you here! If you have any questions, please let us know in a topic or in the chat.

Hey there, thank you for the welcome.
We will certainly have questions.
No it looks like Joe and I are the only ones. Was hoping to have a group we could get together with and get involved with on beginning a resource economy. Lots in and around our little town are thinking and planning a community but haven’t heard much.
Hopefully this forum will assist us in understanding how to develop a sustainable community.
We need a lesson 101. :grin:
Looking forward to meeting more of the TZM community.
