ou are cordially invited to the next TEDxTheHague salon! Our December edition — themed Trust or Bust — is curated by TEDxTheHague.
Trust is the glue of every relation, be it personal, business or political. But how do we keep our trust, with divorce on the rise, a bad economy and the Cold War reheating?
We'll explore this theme by watching and discussing the following videos:
Rachel Botsman: The currency of the new economy is trust
There's been an explosion of collaborative consumption — web-powered sharing of cars, apartments, skills. Rachel Botsman explores the currency that makes systems like Airbnb and Taskrabbit work: trust, influence, and what she calls "reputation capital."
Sarah Chapman: How solar is disrupting the global energy system
The cost of solar energy has fallen by 99 percent in the past 20 years. Sarah Chapman, CEO and co-founder of Iwana Energy, talks about the tremendous opportunities this creates, starting in Guatemala.
Mandy Len Catron: Falling in love is the easy part
Did you know you can fall in love with anyone just by asking them 36 questions? Mandy Len Catron tried this experiment, it worked, and she wrote a viral article about it (that your mom probably sent you). But … is that real love? Did it last? And what’s the difference between falling in love and staying in love?
