Reclaim Solitude | Raymond Kethledge | TEDxUofM
Static Preview

Judge Raymond Kethledge received his undergraduate degree and JD from the University of Michigan and is currently a United States Sixth Circuit Court Judge of the United States Court of Appeals. Kethledge’s favorite place in the world is his remote barn cottage in northern Michigan, where he seeks solitude. Motivated by how solitude has impacted his life, Kethledge spent 7 years researching and writing a book about its benefits. He found that solitude enhances moral courage, clarity, creativity, and emotional balance, among other qualities, and provides an effective defense against entropy in everyday life. Judge Raymond Kethledge received his undergraduate and law degree from the University of Michigan and now works as a United States Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. He often travels to a barn in northern Michigan where he is completely alone, with no access to the internet or the outside world. This has allowed him to realize the importance of solitude in maintaining inner-directed approval and being tied less to external praise. Raymond has focused on using solitude and has honed his understanding of what solitude is and how it can enrich our lives, culminating in a book about the subject. Analyzing the importance of solitude has shown that it enhances moral courage, clarity, creativity, and emotional balance, and provides a way to block out entropy and create order in our everyday lives. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

Can We Build Happier Cities by Charles Montgomery
Static Preview

The most powerful ingredient of happiness is strong positive social connections and it is so when it comes to making citizens and cities happier. Charles Montgomery speaks at Sam Sullivan's February 2014 Public Salon in Vancouver, BC, Canada. 

How can we be happier in cities? Charles Montgomery looks for answers at the intersection of urban design and the new science of happiness. In psychology, neuroscience, and behavio

ral economics, and in cityscapes from Disneyland to Dubai, he explores the link between the ways we design our cities and the ways we think, feel, and act. His work demonstrates how each of us can change our own lives by changing our relationship with the cities we inhabit.

Happiness and Sustainability by Isabel Sebastian
Static Preview

Isabel Sebastian, Business Development Manager at Bhutan Luminous, talks about happiness and well-being as a measure of sustainability progress at BSR Conference 2012: Fast Forward.

She addresses the importance of happiness to development and sustainability; most business models will require significant changes to have a positive effect; and how adapting business models to account for happiness can provide business with unexplored opportunities to help people contribute to society, learn the “skill” of happiness, and transform their lives.

Greater sustainability impacts depend on personal and collective human happiness and well-being.
