Our keynote speaker Ola Rosling is passionate about teaching the public how to develop a fact-based worldview. Together with his father, Hans Rosling, and his wife, Anna Rosling Rönnlund, he created the Gapminder Foundation where they develop  resources based on statistical evidence and distribute freely to everyone.

Ola lead the development of the Trendalyzer software, which was acquired by Google in 2007. He then spent three years working as Product Manager for Google Public Data before returning to the Gapminder Foundation full time. At Google, Ola lead the development and launching of the Motion Chart, as part of Google Spreadsheets, and Public Data Explorer. He is also proud to have helped democratize access to Public Statistics by developing the infrastructure needed to make official statistics part of Google Search results.

Factfulness: The stress-reducing habit of only carrying opinions for which you have strong supporting facts.” – Ola Rosling

In 2014 Ola coined the term Factfulness, which Gapminder is now using in its educational resources in order to make the education about Sustainable Development less ideological and more fact-based.
