This Funzing Experience:

Defining a good life: what makes life most worthwhile?

We all have our own answers to what makes life worth living. For some of us it might be lots of free time, or the presence of those we love. Others might define it as being fit and healthy, or feeling safe and secure. Given how important these things are, isn’t it strange that our politicians hardly talk about them? The things that are most precious to us are often expected to fit in around the edges, around the real business of work and earning a living.

Can we do better than that? Can we imagine a world that takes our deeper human longings seriously? What would that world look like?

This lecture will explore how we currently define progress, and how we came to be so fixated or ‘more’ rather than ‘better’. Then we’ll investigate how we could reconfigure society to deliver more of the things we value most. And since that could be quite a long project, we’ll look at some things we can do as individuals to wrestle back control and create more of what we really want.

Doors will Open at 7pm, The talk will begin promptly at 7.30pm.

LDN Talks @ Night is a new concept which aims to make"Tedx" style talks more accessible. We've pulled together an impressive array of leading entrepreneurs, intellectuals, bright thinkers and incredible individuals to inspire and re-invent your after work beers.

Held in a hand picked range of bars across London, a LDN Talks @ Night event makes the perfect after work mid-week activity.

Delve into a totally new subject and challenge your perspectives over a beer with like-minded Londoners. Funzing has always encouraged you to do something different with your free time, so we say do just that - you never know where it may lead you!
