Why Celebrating WCID Matters

People feel stifled, bored, tired, spent.

It’s effort to keep pace. Drudgery continues.

Then, a spark, a hope, encouragement.

There’s a day for everyone all over the planet to feel free and welcome to generate new ideas, make new decisions, take new actions and achieve new outcomes that make the world a better place and make their place in the world better too.

That’s it. That’s the vision.

It’s like the old Shel Silverstein cartoon

At times when we feel stuck,  we can shift our perspective to make our place in the world better than it appears.

World Creativity and Innovation Day, April 21 and Week, April 15-21 provide an escape hatch of sorts.

Calendar time, for example, to

  • Consider and modify ideas before buying into them: What’s good about what’s going on? How might you adapt to a new situation?
  • Appreciate perspectives and approaches different from ones we already use: How might you figuratively walk in someone else’s shoes?
  • Stretch beyond your knowledge: What’s something you’d like to know more about?
  • Learn from and have new experiences: Get outside your routine.
  • Create new combinations to meet the 2030 Global Goals
  • Feed and further develop your curiosities: What new questions can be asked?
  • Connect with new people: Who’d you like to meet? How might you arrange that?
  • Apply new thinking to technology: What’s another use for your device?
  • Announce a new startup
  • Launch an education campaign: Provide creativity and innovation strengthening activities and lessons
  • Consider ways to code for sustainability

Creativity is in our nature; it’s important to keep it alive to fuel our spirit and our innovations to create a decent life for all. All.
