You are cordially invited to the next TEDxTheHague salon! Our October edition — themed Look Inside!— is curated by TEDxTheHague:
"We are often told to 'look inside' for answers and questions. To accept that we all can change and that lasting change start from the inside. So let's take look inside. Inside our own body, and the minds and perceptions of others."
We'll explore this theme by watching and discussing the following videos:
