WORLD CREATIVITY AND INNOVATION WEEK 15 – 21 APRIL 2019 The purpose of World Creativity and Innovation Day was, and still is, to remind and encourage people to use their creativity to make the world a better place and to make their place in the world better too. April 21, the day before Earth Day (April 22) was chosen as World Creativity and Innovation Day to emphasise the importance of using new thinking to create a decent life for all on a sustainable planet. April 21 is a placeholder in time to give people a reason and opportunity to use imagination productively, to release new thinking, and to celebrate that. In 2006, World Creativity and Innovation Day April 21, became World Creativity and Innovation Week April 15-21. World Creativity and Innovation Day/Week is a time to allow people to free up and encourage using creativity in problem-solving.
