I don’t know about you but I seem to have this constant feeling of eco-guilt. My two teenagers remind me constantly that my generation have a lot to answer for. It’s not a great feeling at all, but they are right. However, instead of panicking, I have committed to new and more eco-friendly habits.
New year, new beginning - and this year it feels even more like a fresh start with it being 2020.
Setting goals for the future can be very exhilarating. It is easy to get enthusiastic during the planning but then you might lose interest in the execution.
The TEDxDunLaoghaire 2019 event was held in The Studio at dlr LexIcon last Friday. As part of the organising team I truly enjoyed it all coming together so nicely and the talks were just amazing. Mindblowing.
The visual I designed for this year’s event is hoping to communicate the theme: Change, beyond the periphery. An explosion of ideas, you never know where they are coming from, there’s no boundaries and it can take you anywhere. All the various posters, bottles, programmes etc. show different triangle shapes to visualise the Change Idea.
The Greek Stoic philosopher Epictetus explained it nicely: We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.
