The Paralympics Impact on Our Creativity and Humanity
How would we define the future of creativity, or the future of humanity?
Our world is full of differences - race, nationality, sexuality, religion, ability etc. There has been much creative work that sent strong messages to overcome these differences. Still, the world is filled with division and in recent years we have become more divided.
So, standing where we are today, what should we agencies do to create a better world and a better future? There’s some clue we can find in the Paralympics. Together with the International Paralympic Committee and Paralympic Gold Medalist, we will unravel the potential impact of the Paralympics which has caused social change in each Game, and the future we pursue with our creativity.
