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 02/12/2021

    When a psychologist who studies well-being ends up with a brain tumor, what happens when she puts her own research into practice?

  • What is melatonin — and should you take it to fall asleep? | Matt Walker
    on 01/12/2021

    Melatonin is the hormone that tells our brains and bodies it’s time to sleep. But if you think melatonin supplements will significantly improve your ability to fall asleep and stay asleep, you may have been misled. Sleep scientist Matt Walker shares how this “hormone of darkness” really works.

  • Is it really that bad to marry my cousin? | Mona Chalabi
    on 30/11/2021

    There are things we accept as obvious truths that aren’t necessarily backed up by data. A primary example: cousin marriage being taboo. In this episode, data journalist Mona Chalabi looks at the numbers behind our family trees to reveal that cousin marriage is much more common and much less “ick” than you might think.

  • Ancient wisdom for healing the planet | Shweta Narayan
    on 29/11/2021

    The doctrine of “first, do no harm” is the basis of the Hippocratic Oath, one of the world’s oldest codes of ethics. It governs the work of physicians — but climate and health campaigner Shweta Narayan says it should go further. In this essential talk, she highlights the interdependence of environmental and human health and emphasizes the necessity of placing health at the heart of all climate solutions. “It’s impossible to have healthy people on a sick planet,” she says.
