You are cordially invited to the next TEDxTheHague salon! Our April edition — themed Spirits of Humanities Past, Present and Future — is curated by TEDxTheHague regular Andre Kuyt. Andre writes:

"It’s basically themed around humanity, with talks describing our origins, our present status quo and our future challenges. I have chosen this theme because I’m fascinated by the human ability to create complex societies in the most varied circumstances, and by the force of technology uplifting our standard of living.”

We'll explore this theme by watching and discussing the following videos:

David Christian: The history of our world in 18 minutes
Backed by stunning illustrations, David Christian narrates a complete history of the universe, from the Big Bang to the Internet.

Anand Giridharadas: A tale of two Americas. And the mini-mart where they collided
Ten days after 9/11, a shocking attack at a Texas mini-mart shattered the lives of two men: the victim and the attacker. In this stunning talk, This is the story of what happened next.

Peter Diamandis: Abundance is our future
Peter Diamandis makes a case for optimism — that we'll invent, innovate and create ways to solve the challenges that loom over us.
