About / Bio
I am Farid Tabarki, the founding director of Studio Zeitgeist, which has researched the Dutch, European and global zeitgeist since 2000, with a thematic focus on radical decentralisation, radical transparency and the liquid society. Studio Zeitgeist models acquired insights into concrete advice and projects that internationally operating or oriented organisations put to use. I write a bi-weekly column in the daily newspaper Het Financieele Dagblad. I have recently written a book about the disappearing ‘middle’ and the emergence of a liquid society, which will be launched in the spring of 2016. I have been proclaimed Trendwatcher of the Year 2012-2013. In 2013 and 2014, the daily newspaper De Volkskrant included me in the list of the 200 most influential people in the Netherlands, the youngest person on the list. I am a international keynote speaker and conference moderator. I presented the parliamentary election edition of MTV Coolpolitics, which was broadcast live on TMF and MTV Benelux. More recently, I presented the television program Dare to Think, from Socrates to Sartre. I am deputy chairman of the Supervisory Board of Het Nieuwe Instituut for architecture, design and e-culture; member of the Board of Curators of De Baak, a training and knowledge institute affiliated with the Confederation of Netherlands Industry and Employers, and member of Platform Education2032, commissioned by the Dutch government to formulate the framework of a future curriculum for primary and secondary education. Last but not least, I visited 132 countries and have only 66 to go.
