Ola Rosling and Anna Rosling Rönnlund had the pleasure to talk in a open event at Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda.
Gapminder has tested the public on the most basic global development trends (see www.gapm.io/gms17) and people seem to be completely misinformed about how the world looks like. Ola and Anna showed how the public seems have a skewed worldview due to basically the three mega-misconceptions: 1) the world is divided in two, 2) the world is getting worse, and 3) the population just keeps growing!
They dismantled these mega misconceptions and offered a new way of thinking about the world: Factfulness.
Factfulness is the relaxing habit of basing your opinion in facts!
