What the Fact?!


What's the most dangerous animals in the world causing human deaths? Are you afraid of taking flights with images of plane crashes from the news etched in your mind? Is the world a more violent place with wars and crimes? 

We're inundated with news about the world - and the world seems like a terrible place to live in now. 

But, is that really the case? 

In the last 20 years, are there more, less or the same percentage of people in the world who live in extreme poverty? 

In 1900, there was about half a million people who died every year from natural disasters (e.g. floods, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, droughts). How many people die from natural disasters now? 

Come join us for this session of "What the fact?!" to help each other better understand the world. Let's start with clearing up some misconceptions because there is a high chance of us being quite wrong about what we think we know about the world. 

Our claim: The world is actually a better place to live in now than ever before in human history. 

We'll be sharing why we think this is so. And we'll share with you how you can equip yourself with skills to use more evidence and reason to more accurately understand the world we live in. 

Let's not be ignorant about the world!
