World Creativity & Innovation Week -Patsie McCandless, Speaker

World Creativity & Innovation Week

The World Creativity & Innovation Week is the United Nations’ 20th Anniversary celebration saluting the ingenious minds making the world turn with ingenuity and inventiveness. It supports and promotes the UN resolution on Sustainable Goals for a better planet.

This Time

We need a week of world creativity and innovation more than ever. On our beautiful planet, earthlings have borne extraordinary assaults on our minds, hearts, souls, bodies. We have endured a deep, dark year steeped in shadows of isolation and uncertainty. It is time to lift that inky veil and breathe anew.

Oh, to wake up every morning… inspired.

Feeling safe to move into our world

 and feeling fulfilled at the end of our day.

But it has been so dark. So easy to get lost, so easy to have forgotten our visions. Where are we? Where are we going? We are lost in despair and the despair is real. So real, we are left confused and bewildered, muddling through our noisy, overwhelming days. It feels like we’re living in a parallel universe where nothing is normal, and we are yearning for a change of direction, a way forward.

A Roadmap

If only we had a map. If only we had a light. Yes. A light. Shining on a transformative path. Showing us the way, through our creative imaginations and inventiveness. This is our enterprising new path, taking us back into the world of feeling safe and easy and flowing and fulfilled. Like a memory of a beautiful dream.

Can you feel such a dream, bubbling up… like a firefly on a warm summer’s eve? Hear my voice. Take my hand.

Come with me as we light up your roadmap,

out of the darkness, into your Light.

It’s waiting for you.

~ from the Organization for World Creativity & Innovation Week:

A worldwide community dedicated to celebrating all forms of creativity

Creativity is what makes the world go ’round. And don’t just take our word for it – look around you: Everything around you is a product of creative minds thinking differently, challenging the norm, taking risks and learning from trial and error. Everything you do can be a creative act.”

“We seek to inspire and enable others

to live a more creative life.”​

Our mission is simple: we want to encourage people to use new ideas, make new decisions, and take the steps towards making the world – and your place in it – better through creative thinking. We are talking about real inspiration, vision, resourcefulness restructuring our world for the better.

United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

Our world wide week of celebrating human creativity and innovation is based on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals from the United Nations. These are all interconnected in a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the local and global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, human dignity, climate change, environmental regeneration, peace and justice.
