Unit 3: Lifestyle – Minimalism- B2&B1

Dear brothers, sister, sons and daughters,
After completing the second unit about the World in the Digital Age and explored Steve Jobs’ philosophy and how Apple has changed the world, we will deal with one of the defect of the modern Age: it is consumerism. People consume more products than ever. We speak about the culture of consumerism. People want to prove their existence by consuming more, shown more what they “own” not what they do. Consequently, the world, or rather USA, has known the emergence of a movement called the minimalists. (https://www.theminimalists.com/)For six weeks we will analyze the film and speak more about the culture of consumerism and how it impacts:
1- Our lifestyle
2- Social relationships
3- The environment
It is a very rich subject that will teach us how:
1- Marketing works.
2- Advertising manipulates
3- Mass media is controlled and how it controls people’s minds.The link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeztQYguAveJp31NgGoftBIIuIGgk4tyq2zT_2kTtubKMIUPg/viewform
