Use your creativity. Do what you can leading up to and after WCID April 21 every year.

Your creativity is needed to help transition from today’s chaos to create a clarity around decision-making.

What if every decision we make contributes to our having, living in, sharing and promoting a healthy planet?

Our systems are broken. Your creativity is being challenged, in a good way.

Here’s where we are today (from a meaningconference.co.uk presentation by Mark Stevenson). Evidence of broken systems, in broad brush strokes:

  • We have lost trust in institutions that govern us
  • Democracy is in retreat – we use a 19th-century system to deal with 21st-century challenges
  • Media sets us against each other; divides us
  • Energy use is unsustainable
  • Healthcare is often a labyrinth of ‘sick care’ rather than reinforcing and sustaining ‘healthiness’
  • The financial system is riddled with risk and short-term-ism
  • Our education systems are stuck in the 1950’s
  • More than half employees hate their jobs – recognizing they are working in a morally blind system that no longer serves the needs of our future.
Imagine applying your creativity – new ideas, new decisions, new actions for new outcomes – to create a decent life for all on a sustainable planet.

What if, instead for example,

  • We had trust in institutions that govern us
  • Democracy is shaped to deal with 21st-century challenges
  • Media unites us
  • Energy use is sustainable
  • Healthcare reinforces and sustains ‘healthiness’
  • The financial system is geared toward the long-term
  • Our education systems are future looking
  • More than half employees like their jobs. They recognize they work in a moral system that serves the needs of our future.
See what you can do.
Celebrate World Creativity and Innovation Day, April 21.
Find a way to make a creative and meaningful difference.
