Topics for presentation
• How the world actually looks like
Fernanda believes that to understand global development it’s important to make the global statistics visible and understandable to destroy our dramatic worldviews. To do that, she presents Dollar Street (dollarstreet.org), a platform where you can see how people live according to their income, along with the Gapminder Bubbles.
• Mega misconceptions about the world
Fernanda would like to dismantle the three mega-misconceptions that skew our worldview by showing what the world really looks like in a way that everyone can understand.
How to control the dramatic instincts which make people misinterpret numeric data and how to learn rules of thumbs that make you feel safe when hearing or making data-driven arguments.
Hands-on workshop about world population, human needs and sustainability.
