About this event

Only bad news is good news. The saying is outdated while the fact is: wherever we follow the news we read about war, crime, collapse and tragedy. Information that does not encourage or foster confidence: Failure is an ever present topic and therefore an everpresent fear. "Will I fail?". Allain de Botton said at the TEDActive conference in Oxford 2009 "you don't have to be good at everything". We would like to supplement this with "there is always something, everybody is good at" as well as an invitation to be proud about this. Courage and self-confidence are the most important prescriptions, which we all need for a successful future for us and our planet. Be proud!
