Shel Horowitz has just launched a new Business For a Better World website and his first offering is a fantastic collecction of teleseminars.

The first Business and Marketing For a Better World Telesummit begins on Tuesday March 11.  16 Green Biz /Marketing Experts draw from both the green world and the marketing world and will be offering stellar content on both sides – and all are exclaiming over the great presentations in the series.

Once you’re registered (no cost), you can listen to each call at no charge on the day it’s listed, with the added bonus of each presenter having at least one no-charge, no-obligation gift for you.

These are not “the usual suspects.” In fact, several haven’t ever shared in a forum like this before. This articulate and passionate group has a lot to share, and you’ll be glad you joined in.

Take a trip over to Shel’s new site and register for this amazing event

The World vs Wall Street

Stand with the Wall Street occupiers and demand real democracy – sign up at Avaaz.org here

Thousands of Americans have non-violently occupied Wall St — an epicentre of global financial power and corruption. They
are the latest ray of light in a new movement for social justice that
is spreading like wildfire from Madrid to Jerusalem to 146 other cities
and counting, but they need our help to succeed.

As working families pay the bill for a financial crisis caused by corrupt elites,
the protesters are calling for real democracy, social justice and
anti-corruption. But they are under severe pressure from authorities,
and some media are dismissing them as fringe groups. If millions of
us from across the world stand with them, we’ll boost their resolve and show the media and leaders that the protests are part of a massive mainstream movement for change. 

This year could be our century’s 1968, but to succeed it must be a movement of all citizens, from every walk of life. Click to join the call for real democracy — a giant live counter of every one of us who signs the petition will be erected in the centre of the occupation in New York,, and live webcasted on this web page.

Resource Based Economy – Zeitgeist: Moving Forward

Zeitgeist: Moving Forward

Zeitgeist: Moving Forward, by director Peter Joseph, is a feature length documentary work which will present a case for a needed transition out of the current socioeconomic monetary paradigm which governs the entire world society. This subject matter will transcend the issues of cultural relativism and traditional ideology and move to relate the core, empirical “life ground” attributes of human and social survival, extrapolating those immutable natural laws into a new sustainable social paradigm called a “Resource-Based Economy”.

The Spirit Level: Why More Equal Societies Almost Always Do Better

“Compelling new evidence presented by The Equality Trust shows that more equal societies – those with a narrower gap between rich and poor – are more cohesive, healthier, suffer fewer social problems and are more environmentally sustainable. In view of these findings I am committed to making the UK a more equal society as the most effective means of building a better society. I will therefore actively support the case for policies designed to narrow the gap between rich and poor; and engage with the debate on which measures should be implemented to achieve that aim.”

There are lots of ways to take action for The Equality Trust. No matter how little time you have available, there is something you can do – go to The Equality Trust website for more information
