Belén Xu: I love the fact that in Aarhus you can see two Rainbows at the same time, that is a very unusual thing to see! Also, it is clear that in Aarhus you can develop new projects, for example we started developing TEDx in Aarhus (which then after TEDxVennelystBlvd ended up in TEDxAarhus) almost 3 years ago. We did our research and discover that there was no such event in a big city like Aarhus. So we started to work on that and soon realized how amazing people is here, I'm still amazed that, when/if you ask for help, people will help you to make your project happen, I think that is exceptional.

HOA: What would you do if you had all the means in the world to do whatever you want?

Belén: I will probably teach people about emotional intelligence, specially to those that are harming the lives of others, also I think I will export the work-life balance policies from Denmark to other places, specially Spain, there is a need to have trust between employee and employer and respect your own personal time.
