Today is World Innovation Day – the final celebration of World Creativity and Innovation Week.
This week marked World Creativity and Innovation Week which has the stated purpose of: Open minds, hearts, eyes to new ideas, new decisions, new actions: one week worldwide. The movement has gained so much momentum in fact that the United Nations has added World Innovation Day on April 21 to its UN Days of Observance alongside Earth Day, Water Day, and World Humanitarian Day.
Today you are encouraged to celebrate innovation and problem-solving, in particular against the big world problems: social, humanitarian, environmental, learning, children, etc. You can add your own initiative to the growing list of Innovation Celebrations happening today around the world at https://wciw.org/wciw-2017/.
As of April 16 there were 85 celebrations and initiatives planned across 28 countries around the world.
