For over a decade, the Council for Creative Education has been celebrating World Creativity and Innovation Day in April. UNESCO has declared April 21st as World Creativity and Innovation Day followed by World Earth Day on April 22. 


Commemorating these 2 special days -  CCE Finland is now ready to welcome researchers & educators around the world for its 9th Symposium on Creative Education focusing on 'Creativity for Sustainable Education'. 


For UNESCO, education for sustainable development involves: Integrating key sustainable development issues into teaching and learning. This may include, for example, instruction about climate change, disaster risk reduction, biodiversity, and poverty reduction and sustainable consumption. It also requires participatory teaching and learning methods that motivate and empower learners to change their behaviors and take action for sustainable development. ESD consequently promotes competencies like critical thinking, imagining future scenarios and making decisions in a collaborative way.


Through this symposium, CCE Finland aims to provide a common global forum to esteemed researchers and educators to present their research/innovation on how creativity plays an important role in designing new tools for sustainable development. 9th Symposium promises insights on key methodology, real-time classroom implementation and some meaningful debates and discussion.
