About this event

You are cordially invited to the next TEDxTheHague salon. Our June edition — themed Embracing
the End — is curated by the TEDxTheHague board.

We hope this theme will resonate with you, especially if you were a personal friend of Yolanthe Smit. Please join us to explore this theme and share your thoughts, feelings and memories. We will facilitate the conversation by watching and discussing the following videos:

Judy MacDonald Johnston: Prepare for a good end of life
Thinking about death is frightening, but planning ahead is practical and leaves more room for peace of mind in our final days. In a solemn, thoughtful talk, Judy MacDonald Johnston shares 5 practices for planning for a good end of life.

Adam Ostrow: After your final status update
Many of us have a social media presence -- a virtual personality made up of status updates, tweets and connections, stored in the cloud. Adam Ostrow asks a big question: What happens to that personality after you've died? Could it ... live on?

Kathleen Taylor: Rethinking the Bucket List (TEDxTampaBay)
Kathleen Taylor works for a large nonprofit hospice organization. As a professional listener, the stories of the dying taught her the most. In this thought-provoking speech, she questions the YOLO-attitude and instead wonders: "Imagine if we truly figured out who we are."

RSVP if you want to attend
To stimulate conversation, we admit up to 20 guests. If you want to be put on our final guest list, please RSVP. First-come, first-served.

We look forward to a stimulating evening filled with spirited conversation and new discoveries.

Don't miss it, till TEDx!
