Why should you do something meaningless?

We have all had at least one completely meaningless idea. One that we concluded was just too stupid to actually complete and fulfil. Joakim takes us on a journey showing what can happen if you actually were to go through with that idea. Not only did Joakim and his friends just complete that one idea they had, they continued doing something that seemed meaningless, and ended up finding meaning and fulfilment. Listen in to Joakim’s entertaining and funny talk about his mountain concept. Moreover, why carrying random stuff to the top of mountains actually makes sense. Joakim Jørgensen shot to fame when he took his passion for hiking and his interest in posting on social media to new heights. Literally!

He is one half of the popular duo, who posts some of the most wackiest and surrealistic pictures and videos on Instagram and Youtube under the name “The Mountain Concept”. One of his more challenging videos, required him to carry a porcelain toilet bowl to the top of Store Blåmann, the highest peak on Kvaløya in Troms, Norway, 1040 meters above sea level. To Joakim, it’s all about pushing boundaries, getting creative, creating reactions, and having a good laugh! This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
