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.

Creativity is natural. Allow it.
Give creativity time and space. Freedom.
Give it practice.

Creativity means change. Notice what needs changing.
What can you do about it?

Creativity is not about setting standards for comparison;
it is a doorway for
expression,
exploration,
discovery,
curiosity,
focus,
movement,
stillness,
play.

New ideas, new decisions, new actions. New pair of eyes.

Creativity takes courage to separate, if only for a moment, into a world of imagination, and remix, combine, and/or elevate old ideas to new perspectives, new times, new futures.

Practice, learn, experience and grow from
frustration,
confusion,
curiosity,
clarity,
joy,
laughter,
breakthrough,
insight,
aha.

Creativity is natural. Allow it time and space. Freedom.
Keep fresh your capacity to create and innovate.

Celebrate World Creativity and Innovation Week.
April 15-21 every year.

Notice what needs changing.
What can you do about it?

List your activity for #WCIW2017.
Inspire the world.
