Event 98


We pay attention to dramatic stories and are bored when drama is absent. It could be said that craving drama is akin to craving sugar; it’s moreish. Such a “dramatic” worldview is not only stressful but leads to a lack of focus, ignorance and bad decision making. The non-profit organisation Gapminder Foundation was established in Sweden by the late Hans Rosling, with his son and daughter-in-law Ola Rosling and Anna Rosling Rönnlund, to champion facts above drama. They are the authors of Barack Obama’s best-of-2018 and Bill Gates’ championed title Factfulness. Join them to develop the relaxing habit of forming opinion based on fact.

Supported by Platinum Bold Patrons Betsy & Michael Benjamin.

Ola Rosling is now unable to travel for personal reasons, and Anna Rosling Rönnlund deliver a solo presentation.
