We will be starting our journey on August 2nd and ask you to join us (in your cities and on the web) as we travel the country in a waste veggie grease fueled old Mercedes to film a documentary across an estimated thirty three states. Yes, our exhaust will smell like donuts and freedom fries. We will be camping in the woods, couch surfing in cities and hanging out on reservations. I expect we will be on the road two months. Maybe more. This is only our second serious road trip, and our first filming in digital HD and I am learning Final Cut as we go. We welcome feedback and any insight you have to share! Should be an adventure. www.jessicaandolivia.com+ More details

Jose likes soccer. He likes his car. And he loves his family, which is why he left Mexico for the United States when he was 17, started working, and now sends about 20 percent of his pay to support them in Mexico. Like many of the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States, Jose came here for opportunities that don't exist at home. “We’re not criminals,” said Jose, which is not his real name. “We just come here to seek a better life.” Indeed, economic necessity is the reason people risk their lives to work in the United States. And contrary to rhetoric that immigrants steal American jobs and drive down wages, research shows that immigrant labor is a necessity to the U.S. economy: - The Arizona economy would shrink by $48.8 billion, or 20 percent, if all undocumented workers left the state (Immigration Policy Center, March 2011) - Immigration improves employment, productivity and income but needs adjustments that respond to the economic cycle (Migration Policy Institute, June 2010) - Hispanic immigrants contributed $9.2 billion to the North Carolina economy in 2006 and created 89,000 spinoff jobs (UNC-Chapel Hill's Kenan Flagler Business School, Jan. 2006) ++++++++++ Photography and Videography: Laura Elizabeth Pohl Multimedia Production and Additional Video: Brad Horn Additional Audio: Molly Marsh Interviews and Translation: Ivone Guillen Graphics: Hilary Kay Doran Music: Scabeater, Giorgio Boffa, Sambodhi Prem+ More details

As economic growth stalled in 2012, will 2013 be the year we learn to live without economic growth? In this video Charles covers his observations from travelling around austerity stricken Europe and the need to detach our notion of progress from material acquisition. We'll be releasing a second video with Charles in 2013 where he talks about the systemic change needed in the global money system and debt forgiveness. Check out our other videos to learn more about the end of economic growth.+ More details
Presentation given for ZDAY2011 in Portland OR. How can the transition happen, what would a possible transition look like, and is the transition we are talking about even unique in Earth's history? And what can we do today? Sebastian Chedal presents the connection between current world changes and past evolutionary patterns. We look at evolutionary cycles, energy curves, growing cycles of innovation and adaptation. Concepts from Spiral Dynamics, Ken Wilber, Steve Macintosh Integral Philosophy, Venus Project, Permaculture and Gift Economics. The final part of this presentation analyses global initiatives related to the Venus Project and the Zeitgeist Movement so that people who are interested in making a change today have options regarding where they can get involved. Finally local Portland chapter initiatives are also mentioned. For more information, and links to the resources mentioned, please visit http://zeitgeistpdx.org/zday2011+ More details
