The United Nations World Creativity and Innovation Day

2021-04-21

innovation-dayThe beauty of our world lies in our differences. Differences of culture, color, language and art have always driven conversation, inspired people, and moved our society toward a true era of globalization. While food may taste different, clothing look different and culture is unique to every nation on earth, the truth of our human success stems directly from our human need to create and innovate. To see something come from nothing, be that money, technology or art.

The United Nations Creative Economy Report "Widening local development pathways," co-published by UNESCO, UNDP, and UNOSSC, names creativity and innovation at both the individual and group levels, as key elements in building “the wealth of nations.”  The UN recognizes that creativity and culture, partially defined as “audiovisual products, design, new media, performing arts, publishing and visual arts” enriches the individual and the community, inspiring sustainable development, innovation, and even identity.

Cultural and creative industries generate $2.25 billion yearly, according to the UNESCO report on culture and sustainable development, creating millions of jobs, spurring on economic growth, and giving those men, women and children in poverty and in wealth alike, an opportunity to impact their world in a visceral way.

Without creativity and innovation we would not have the internet, flight, antibiotics or books. Many take for granted our ability to reach out and communicate with people across the globe in seconds, not seeing the work that went into creating that magic.

World Creativity and Innovation day (#WCID), falls on April 21st 2021, and is a day to remind us of the importance of those among us who aren’t bound by the ideas of those who came before us. Those who look at something and want to make it better, more powerful, and more sustainable. Without these people with dreams, where would society be?
