Google Doodle Request for #WCID2018

Hi Everyone,

I hope you can help.

Today I posted an email to proposals@google.com. I asked the team to create a Google Doodle for World Creativity and Innovation Day, April 21, to help spread the word and concept behind it. Which is…

Everyone can generate new ideas, make new decisions, take new actions and achieve new outcomes to make the world a better place and to make their place in the world better too.

I’m hoping you’ll be able to help and to write the Google Doodle team as well with a request.  proposals@google.com

Here’s are examples of a few Google Doodles. These will appear on the Google search engine page

 

Here’s the text of the email:

Hey there Google Doodlers!

I’m writing to inspire you to include a Google Doodle for World Creativity and Innovation Day, April 21, 2018 (WCID).  It’s the first time the United Nations will be celebrating it; the UN General Assembly passed a resolution to include WCID among their International Days of Observance in 2017.

The UN wants people to use creativity in problem-solving to advance meeting the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. “Traditional thinking,” UN Ambassador from St. Vincent and the Grenadines Rhonda King, said, “will not help us solve the problems we have.”

Here’s the 5-minute video of Ambassador I. Rhonda King speaking for the resolution:

Creative studies grad student Nicolette Wever created this graphic during a talk I gave last month at the International Center for Studies in Creativity, Creativity Expert Exchange, about the UN resolution. Underneath it is a photo of me. Pretty good likeness, eh? (for WCIW.org readers, the video of the speech will be posted when it is ready.)

WCID observances began in 2001 – it’s a folk celebration intended to include everyone on the planet, to generate new ideas, make new decisions, take new actions and achieve new outcomes to make the world a better place and to make our place in the world better too.

On our homespun website (it’s a labour of love, no money involved, entirely volunteer) you’ll see that people in over 50 countries take part in activities ranging from friends potluck suppers to multinational organizations pushing their need for innovation speed and engagement. Schools, universities, clubs, you name it – all are invited to take part – it’s like Mothers Day in a way – each celebrates in ways relevant to their context.

It would be great to have your support. Please help spread the word and to align with the UN’s first official event for WCID by creating and posting a Google Doodle for the day.

Please help spread the energy to inspire new thinking all over the world.

Might you?

Feel free to get in touch for conversation, further info, and to make suggestions??

Thanks!!  Hope to hear from you soon.

 

Best regards

Marci
