It matters for countries, economies, employers, parents and learners and creativity is now seen and appreciated as one of the most important skills for the learners of today and tomorrow by Organisations such as the World Economic Forum, the OECD and Ministries of Education around the world.
There is, however, a big gap between the desire for creativity and education systems’ ability to develop and nurture this pivotal skill.
Creativity Matters is a series of LEGO Foundation publications that convenes a broad spectrum of viewpoints and opinions focused on creativity in education systems. The aim is to stimulate discussion about this by engaging key people who exert influence and mould results in the field of education.
The series also aims to highlight why creativity matters, as well as how education systems can best adapt and reimagine learning to equip the learners of today and tomorrow with the creative skills, mindsets and confidence they need. We hope it will also help convince education policy-makers and decision-takers of the urgent need to foster creativity skills in classrooms.
We believe that all children have the potential to be creative, a potential that can be nurtured over time
