What is your favourite TED talk
?

Can I choose more than one? No? Hmm. Well, like Lorena and Rike, I’m also a big fan of Sir Ken Robinson on education and creativity (I especially love the RSA animate version), but for a bit of variety I’ll share something different with you:

While I disagree with always looking to problems in society to try to explain away our own shortcomings, Dave Meslin’s talk at TEDxToronto raises some powerful points about the role of advertising, media, and fictional role models in a growing epidemic of ‘apathy’. At just 7 minutes long, it’s a short and sweet message about a few things we could do differently to get people more involved in issues that affect them.
