Hans Rosling (Sweden)
Plenary speech on Sunday 8 July 2012

Professor in International Health at Karolinska institutet in Stockholm, Sweden.
Co-founder of the Gapminder Foundation.

The Gapminder Foundation develops software that converts statistics into animated graphics. Professor Rosling ”has become famous for his energetic lectures, in which he narrates mind-blowing statistics on development and public health”, writes Foreign Policy Magazine, which included him among the 100 most important global thinkers in 2009.

Among other things, Professor Rosling is known for dispelling common myths about human development, and for arguing that the world’s population growth can balance out at nine billion people in 2050. He was a plenary speaker already in Hong Kong in 2010. This time the title will be ”Is there an optimal inequity?”
