About this resource

Gapminder is an independent educational non-profit fighting global misconceptions. The gapmider website is an engaging and interactive space designed to fight ignorance with a fact-based worldview everyone can understand.

Gapminder identifies frequent misconceptions about critical global trends and proportions and uses reliable data to develop easy-to-understand teaching materials to rid people of their delusions.

Why we recommend this resource

Everyone holds misconceptions. Whether these are reinforced through fake news, unreliable sources, or just a lack of information, no one knows all the real data. Gapminder is making all the information available for people to view across a wide spectrum of political, social, environmental, and economic issues.

The foundation has no political, religious, or economic affiliations so can produce unbiased information which solely focuses on the truth. The process in which they develop their teaching materials allows them to understand common misconceptions and target them. They understand what causes bias, and how people perceive different issues and don’t force an agenda, it’s just about the facts.
