Last weekend, we were invited to speak at TEDxFlanders in the beautiful Flemish opera in Antwerp. I felt incredibly honored to be surrounded by all these incredible speakers and to take part in such a professionally organized event. I would love to share some of the highlights of that day with you. It’s very difficult to only pick a few talks, since many of them were really good, but here we go.
John Hunter created the world peace game for primary school kids to explore the connectedness of the global community and the imminent threat of war. The children become world leaders themselves with the ultimate goal to achieve World Peace.
Dan Brodsky-Chenfeld survived a plane crash and became a world champion skydiving multiple times after. He tells a beautiful story with a message we feel very connected to. Very grateful to have had the chance to have a chat with him. What a dynamic. Respect.
And there were a lot of other extremely interesting talks that day. Molly Crockett, a PhD researcher at Oxford, talked about how food can influence our moral decisions. Jean-Paul Van Bendeghem, a philosophy professor at the University of Brussels, was his funny self trying to explain logics to lay people. Bernard Lietaer, one of the designers of the Euro, gave an interesting talk explaining why he doesn’t believe in a monocultural monetary system.
We too gave a talk that day. About an experiment we did. It was a talk about lifestyle design and digital nomadism. Hope you’ll enjoy.
