SPEAKER ANNOUNCEMENT: MARIE STEENBERGER
Believe in compassion
We are constantly exposed to good nutritional advice: This food is good for you. This food is bad. This is healthy – and this is the best way to lose those extra pounds! But according to Marie Steenberger, we need to step back and rethink our approach to eating.
When the dialogue is only about the rational, the ingredients and their chemical effects on the body, and not the emotional motivations behind our appetite, it is only rational that the feelings associated with eating are not counted in the equation of good health. Eating isn’t just nutrition, it’s also about coping with our emotions. Marie believes we need to turn and engage with those emotions if we want to change how we eat for the better.
Marie Steenberger walks on stage with a mission to offer a challenge to her health professional peers and bring emotion back into the discourse on eating and good health. Maybe the problem isn’t carbs.
Maybe it’s a lack of compassion?
Come and experience Marie Steenberger at TEDxCopenhagen on February 7th at Bremen Teater in Copenhagen, and hear her take on nutritional dogma with self-love and confidence.

"To believe or not to believe"
That used to be the question. Today, believing in something is more complex, constantly changing and evolving. In a society that encourages individual freedom, we are constantly exposed to people who perceive the world around us in a different way. Individual belief is celebrated and although our beliefs may be different we are brought together through the knowledge that belonging is an integral part of personal existence
We are changing and so are the things we believe in and the values we hold. As Western values evolve from the religious to the individual and secular, our beliefs move beyond spirituality. Thanks to innovations in modern technology, a wealth of information is now easy to indulge in. But with an infinite amount of information, truth becomes increasingly relative, causing our beliefs and values to evolve.
What do we actually believe in? Why do we believe? How have our beliefs changed? In the upcoming TEDxCopenhagen event, we want to explore the modern landscape of what we believe in, what you believe in, what they believe in and what it all means to us.
From February 7th. 2019, Bremen Theater, Copenhagen.
