Do you feel that things are getting worse in the world? Poverty, hunger, plane crashes, deaths from disasters, ozone depletion? This course will present interesting and up-to-date information on these issues and more. Based on the bestselling book, 'Factfulness: Ten Reasons We're Wrong About the World - and Why Things are Better Than You Think', we will discuss human instincts that slant our view of the world; look at current data to get a realistic perspective on the ways the world is changing; and focus on the last 50+ years in relation to access to education, reducing poverty, increasing life expectancy, and protecting endangered species.
Anyone who would like to expand their knowledge about global issues and how our natural biases/instincts colour of understanding of what's really happening in the world.
We'll provide all materials for this course.
