Today's Reason to Celebrate

April 21, 2017 is

World Creativity and Innovation Day

It’s World Creativity and Innovation Day! Today is the day to celebrate your creativity and new ideas! World Creativity and Innovation Day is the final day of celebration during World Creativity and Innovation Week. It has been celebrated in over 46 countries since 2002. People in businesses, organizations, schools, and communities take part in this day to generate new ideas for a brighter future.

Marci Segal, a creativity specialist, came up with the idea for World Creativity and Innovation Day. After reading a newspaper headline, “Canada in Creativity Crisis,” Segal decided to do something about it. With the help of her colleagues, she organized the first World Creativity Day to encourage people to use creativity to make the world a better place.

There are many ways to celebrate this day, so just use your imagination! Invite some friends over tonight for some creative activities or a brainstorm session to solve a neighborhood problem. Good luck!
