2022 main theme

How might we inspire creativity in education?

Every year Ideas World Cup has a unique theme, a global challenge that affects us all, and that only by sharing our ideas and working together can be solved. This year’s main sponsor has provided the challenge which is divided into a diverse arrange of sub-themes.  

get to know all our challenges

Creativity is an essential life skill that is fundamental to solving the world’s most challenging problems and issues. We believe creativity is a powerful and fundamental skill that needs to be championed across educational ecosystems globally.

Why?

• Because it is an underserved concept in our education systems
• Because teachers, parents, and students need to be better supported
• Because it is a transformational tool for driving social equity
• Because investing in our children today builds a brighter future for tomorrow

Our sub-challenges below are intended to inspire you to think broadly about this topic, and to consider different aspects of the central theme.
Culture, Environment, Future of Learning, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, Network Effect.

You can read the full brief of the challenge and participate with your ideas on the Ideas platform.
