The Zeitgeist Movement (TZM) is a grassroot movement whose stated focus is on increasing society's awareness of the suggested need for global social change for the better of all of the world. It describes itself as a "sustainability advocacy organization." It sees itself as the activist arm of The Venus Project founded by industrial designer and social engineer Jacque Fresco. The Zeitgeist Movement was inspired by the social response from Peter Joseph's films Zeitgeist the Movie and Zeitgeist: Addendum (Addendum is better than the Movie). However, it was Zeitgeist Addendum which first introduced The Venus Project. The Movement's website states that a distinction is made between the work of The Movement and the issues raised in Peter Joseph's films in that The Movement is not necessarily in advocacy of any issues raised in the films and exists on its own.
