Indeed creativity and innovation do need to be celebrated, acknowledged and fostered, today more than ever, because this is exactly what we need the most today. Humanity’s at a turning point, where the solutions of the past have become the problems of the present. Economic and social systems that allowed progress in every field at unprecedented scale like never before and that we should be grateful for to our ancestors and foreparents. Yet today’s world is not facing the problems of yesterday but those of today, and is not equipped to deal with them, would be like having medieval surgery tools in a modern day high-tech hospital. Nowadays we are facing challenges and problems that are more global, though with strong local effects, which need a worldwide approach and response, and for that today’s governance, economic, political and social tools have become obsolete and inefficient in tackling the climate crisis, pollution, mass migration and even the pandemic has showed us the need of a global effort. We are now looking at young people, and with pressure to let out those ideas, to be creative, to lead innovation and come up with new models, systems and pave the way to keep up human economic, political, cultural and social progress to the next level. It is a lot of pressure, it is necessary, it is possible.
