One of my favourite apps on my iPhone is my TED Talks app. Not familiar with TED Talks? Here’s what it’s all about in a nutshell:
“TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader.” —TED Talks website
What I love about it is that I can hear some of the smartest minds talk about their passion—for free. There are hundreds of TED Talks to choose from, and the speakers are quite an eclectic bunch—scientists, celebrities, comedians, doctors, chefs, authors, entrepreneurs—I could go on and on.
There are some really interesting talks that focus on the environment. If you happen to find yourself some free time (some of them are only five minutes long!), take a listen—they are all fascinating and I’m sure you will learn a thing or two. Or three.
Here are 12 great talks to start with:
