“We live in turbulent times,” some say. “Look at the horrible crises ravaging our planet,” others chime in. But the more attentive observers notice that alongside big shifts many smaller changes are taking place, too. These do not lead to earthquakes, but are the birthplace for new beginnings. Mindshifts like these rigorously challenge our inner status quo and encourage us to look into the future.

Kas mäletate, et juulikuus toimus TEDxTallinnSalon? Meie mäletame! Nüüd on aeg käes jagada kolme kõne, mis meid Aegnal või laevareisil saatsid. Esimesena astub lavale – õigemini otse loodusesse – Peeter Illison. Peeter arutleb, kuidas ja mis varustusega jääda ellu keerulistes olukordades ning mis roll on meie kehal & vaimul. Head kuulamist!

Do you remember that TEDxTallinnSalon took place in July on Aegna island? The time has come to share the talks from that event. First up to take the stage, or should we say – stand under the trees – is Peeter Illison. Peeter talks about survival skills – what equipment do we need in difficult situations and what role does the body and mind play? Enjoy!
Milline varustus aitab keerulistes tingimustes ellu jääda? Peeter usub, et meie kõige ägedam varustus on meie keha ja vaim. Ta treenib end toime tulema keeru…

Kohe algab uus kooliaasta ja kõik on ootusärevust täis– õpilased, õpetajad, lapsevanemad. Kõik tahavad, et lastel oleks head õpitulemused ja nad oleksid elus õnnelikud. Siiski tasub meeles pidada, et ainult hinded ei ole olulised. Koolis omandatakse akadeemilisi teadmisi, aga lisaks ka õpitakse ennast tundma, kasvatakse iga päev, kogetakse empaatiat, lastakse isiksusel areneda. Õpitulemused on ainult jäämäe veepealne tipp. Laste edukust ja õnnelikkust elus mõjutab ka selle jäämäe veealune osa, mis tuleneb kultuurist, mida kool suudab õpilaste ümber luua. Andrew Hammond räägib lähemalt.

The new school year is about to begin and everyone is full of anticipation — students, teachers, parents. Everyone wants children to have good grades and be happy in life. However, it is worth remembering that scores alone are not important. Children acquire academic knowledge at school, but they also learn about themselves, experience empathy and growth, and develop their personalities. Learning outcomes are only the tip of the iceberg. The success and happiness in their lives is also influenced by the underwater part of the iceberg, which comes from the culture and community that the school creates around the students. Andrew Hammond will talk in more detail.
Our children are more than the sum of their school grades. Behind every exam result lies a whole person with incalculable, untapped potential and myriad face…

    on 22/09/2021

But despite the huge successes of this kind of intervention, conservation innovator Ryan Phelan points out that fear of unintended consequences often stifles innovation — risking further extinction.
