What is Zenks!?
Zenks! is a life philosophy based on empowering and connecting all that is positive in the world with the aim of creating wealth and well being in our environment.
The principles of this philosophy can be found in the Zenks! manifesto.
If you want to live in a positive world, your passport is the Wealth Plan, the main tool which will enable all of us to turn our cities into Positive Cities.
So Zenks! is a concept which can be considered a universal word which embodies the positive part of people and our world. A word that can be used to give thanks to all the good things life offers us from day to day, all over the world.
Zenks: Positive, Positivo/a,Positif, etc.
Zenks!:Thanks!, Gracias!,Merci!, etc.
At Zenks! we believe it is possible to create a better world in which everybody, businesses and institutions present the best versions of themselves. A place where people are commited to helping others in exchange for gratitude; a place where citizens, companies, institutions and universities share knowledge and experience to generate ‘wealth’ in their environment. Wealth that is measured in emotional and intellectual and material values with the ultimate aim of happiness.
Zenks! and the butterfly effect
Zenks! is based on one concept of the chaos theory: the butterfly effect.
“The mere flapping of a butterfly’s wings can change the world”.
From our viewpoint, the theory would be: ‘Given the current, chaotic state of our world, a small, positive gesture from each and every one of us, together with the right ways to spread and get this act to catch on, could generate positive transformation throughout the world.
For Zenks!, this small act is the thanks given through your Social Wealth Plan, the ways to spread and get the act to catch on, Zenks! clubs in each city; the great transformation, the connection of ‘Positive Cities’ throughout the world
We are the result of our constituent parts and together we can change the world.
