Outreach Program

527641_319829188097487_1901571033_nThe Outreach Program is designed to spread the word about The Zeitgeist Movement.

Rather than getting out and ‘prozletizing’, one approach is to be ready to provide easily accessible information at the appropriate time.

With mobile devices, we can show and share sites and information. Sometimes a business card is better. We have prepared a ZMAu fillable pdf you can use to (if you wish) include your contact details, take to a printery and produce your own cards (for example, OfficeWorks will do 50 cards for about $20). The link to the file is in Dropbox (you need an account which is free to register):


Another approach you may like to take is to be prepared with some interesting quiz questions that stimulate discussion. Here are some examples

Our household ecological footprint is a measure of how much of our planet’s resources are required annually to support our ‘lifestyle’.
