Creativity is cool

April 1st, 2023

Marci Segal of Toronto, Canada founded World Creativity and Innovation Day in 2001. She chose April 21 because it preceded Earth Day. This helped to highlight the importance of creativity in making our planet sustainable. The World Day of Creativity and Innovation was adopted by the resolution of the United Nations and was held for the first time on April 21, 2018. Creativity is very important part of our lives because it allows us to express our feelings and ideas and to share them with others. Creative expression is a tool that can be used in solving problems and situations, because creativity allows us to see the problem from multiple angles and in new ways.

Innovation is a word that is often used alongside creativity. Both words have similar definitions, except that innovation usually involves a creative process. The best definition of innovation is the creation, development and implementation of a new product or service. The goal of innovation is to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of something.

Creativity itself is not directly related to any industry, so we can find it in any job and it does not depend on age.

From a young age, I started making jewelry, drawing and using old paper and canvas. It helped me to find myself and to somehow express my feelings through creativity. I am a student of health studies, but through creativity, drawing, painting or decoupage, in one way I rest, I feel happier, but I also use my free time for useful things. I noticed that my thoughts were faster, more complex, more detailed and organized.

Through creativity, you will develop new talents, skills, and you will become a more complete person, and at the same time, you will feel happier and more satisfied, and you will have a new way to use your free time wisely.
