In this Hans Rosling keynote, the professor of global health at Sweden's Karolinska Institute argues against common myths in regards to developing nations around the world.
Far from being a straightforward relaying of facts, Rosling knows how to captivate his audience and harness the attention required to make an impact and thus help turn efforts into realities in developing worlds. Using software that he developed, Rosling illustrates growing global trends and proves that nations such as Africa are developing faster than American did and is not as far behind as many people would assume.
Discussing the Dimensions for Development, Hans Rosling sets out two areas that are necessary for achieving global change: the means and the goals for achieving development. Ending his keynote, the lively professor performs an act of sword swallowing to highlight his point that is "the seemingly impossible is possible."
