Welcome to an open lecture held by Olof Gränström from Gapminder Foundation. Gapminder was founded by the late professor Hans Rosling in his quest to spread awareness about the importance of a fact-based worldview. This lecture will be held in English.

The lecture is based on Factfulness - a book that suggests the vast majority of human beings are wrong about the state of the world. During the lecture Olof will talk about our misconceptions about developments in the world and mental habits that can help you develop a more fact-based worldview.
