People’s Creativity and Innovation are key to create the future .

#wcid2018 and/or #wciw2018 celebration

On the Saturday night of our conference, April 21, we will have approximately 200 people who will have been given a card at registration that shows four of the Sustainable Development Goals: Quality Education, Health and Well Being, Gender Equality and Climate Action. These can all be worked on, in some way, by individuals in their respective communities. Participants will be asked to consider which they are most interested in focusing their creativity upon to begin to solve in their respective areas
As they enter the session (after dinner)
  • We will remind everyone that this is World Creativity and Innovation Day and show a 2-minute version of your video.
  • We will then discuss the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and explain how we will proceed
  • We are partnering with Stormz, which allows us to use 70 iPads simultaneously and to have small groups (3 or 4) working together on their chosen SDG. We will reframe the goal and translate it into creativity-spurring “how might we” statements.
  • The conference participants will generate ideas for how to act to address their goal in their communities
  • All the ideas of each group will be shared via their iPads.
  • From there they vote for the best ideas to come up with the top selections.
  • Next, each person (still in their small groups) will identify one action they can commit to and will post these on the wall and also share via the iPad. These actions will be presented with the person’s picture so when we bring everyone together we will have a presentation for each of the four goals including best ideas and individual commitments.
At the session closing, we will announce that we will contact them in 3 months (or so) to check on their outcomes and to record these to share with the conference group and the world.  We are thinking to do a follow up at our conference next year at the same time.

CREA participants and their communities, and people reading about this program to extend their ideas for using creativity in problem-solving to meet the 2030 Sustainable Goals.
