For a State of Happiness: Jasper Bergink

Born in the Netherlands, Jasper Bergink works as an EU Affairs Consultant in Financial Services, Brussels. He volunteers in the online communications team of TEDxAmsterdam and co-directed the TED-like « Stagiaires Ideas That Matter », an event for European Commission Trainees. Jasper loves the small things in life and likes to wonder about the mundane and the significant. He enjoys languages, street art, bike rides through town and really good coffees. “What makes us happy?” is probably the question most pondered by people. Many answers have been found, but few people apply these lessons in their daily lives. But happiness is not an individual asset: it is also a collective good. In his talk, Jasper will explore what individuals and politicians can do to achieve in their lives and their countries a State of Happiness. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
