United Nations will Recognize World Creativity and Innovation Day, April 21

Innovation Excellence - United Nations to recognize World Creativity and Innovation Day, April 21

Thank you, everyone, for your leadership, inspiring others to use creativity (generating new ideas, making new decisions, taking new actions and achieving new outcomes) and innovation in their problem-finding and problem-solving to make the world a better place and to make their place in the world better too.

I am thrilled to announce that On April 20, 2017,  10:00 am (ET), I. Rhonda King, Permanent Representative/Ambassador to the United Nations from St. Vincent and the Grenadines will read a UN resolution on the floor of the General Assembly to include World Creativity and Innovation Day, April 21, among the UN Days of Observance which includes Earth Day, Water Day, World Humanitarian Day.

In her 10-minute speech, Ms. King will emphasize the importance of using creativity to meet the 2030 UN Sustainable Development Goals: 17 Goals to Transform the World.

Friends, I urge you to do a few things:

Review the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and choose one to creatively champion (even in one small way) with your family, friends, clients and colleagues this year and every year forward; in the coming months we will be collecting your stories so keep a record, and stay tuned!

Gather with others (colleagues, clients, family, friends) to watch Permanent Representative I. Rhonda King deliver her speech on Thursday, April 20, 2017, at 10:00 Eastern Time on UNWebTv

Celebrate, celebrate, celebrate! on April 21st; the UN is sanctioning using creativity to problem-solve to make the world a better place and to make your place in the world better too.

List your celebration here (it’s free!) for others to see.
