Introduction Arrow pointing right

AFRY x Gapminder

Gapminder and AFRY have a common goal: to identify misconceptions and to raise awareness when it comes to the major challenges of our time. By doing so we want to make the world a better place.

In our partnership with Gapminder, we offer knowledge from our areas of expertise and together we will address the sustainable development goals set by the UN.

As part of this collaboration, a new knowledge test will be developed with questions about sustainable development. The purpose of the test is to increase the general knowledge when it comes to social, economical and environmental sustainability.

When you know better – you do better.

About Gapminder

Gapminder is an independent Swedish foundation which fights devastating misconceptions about global development.

Gapminder has as its aim the promotion of a more fact-based worldview.

Our worldview these days is often over-dramatized and distorted because of media, widely spread opinions and the fact that the human brain craves for drama. But for the first time in history reliable data exists, about almost everything, and through this a very different picture appears.

It achieves this by measuring ignorance about the world, making global data easy to understand and providing courses and certificates. It was founded in 2005 by professor Hans Rosling, his son Ola Rosling and daugther-in-law Anna Rosling Rönnlund.

AFRY is now a proud partner, contributing our knowledge and facts.

To find a true match in partnership is rare but, once you do, the possibility of accomplishing great deeds arises.
