WCID Speech from the Floor of the United Nations General Assembly

Ambassador I. Rhonda King, Permanent Representative to the United Nations from St. Vincent and the Grenadines spoke at the UN General Assembly just after 10:00 am April 27, 2017. Ambassador King championed the resolution to include World Creativity and Innovation Day, April 21 among the UN Days of Observance.


Here’s the video of Ambassador King’s historic speech – opening the door for people all over the planet to use their creativity to make the world a better place and to make their place in the world better too. Let’s move away from debating who has more, who less; instead, let us use our creativeness wisely, with responsibility, meaningfully and with impact.

The efforts of so many people in so many nations in so many fields throughout human history advanced creative thinking through practice, research, education; these set the stage for this momentous occasion.

From now moving forward we can hold and advance attitudes of positivity toward generating new ideas, making new decisions, taking new actions and achieving new outcomes to attend to the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals which cover all aspects of life on our planet.
