How does “creativity” translate across different cultures and why is innovative thinking the skill of the future?

Camp Innovation is a program that gives you an opportunity to discuss these and other questions with participants from Ukraine, America, Peru, and Denmark during our program. Join us if you already have any ideas relating to youth, social enterprises, businesses, art, technology, or just want to learn how creative thinking can bring new colors to your daily life.

The program consists of 3 sessions, 2 general and 1 one-on-one session, each would last approximately 1-1.5 hours. One-on-one sessions would be held in a “zoom pal” for a day format, where you will be matched with a counterpart representing their country.

We believe that anyone can spark innovation and have super ideas worth sharing – just give them a try!

  • Network with like-minded people from Ukraine, the United States of America, Peru, and Denmark with various backgrounds, all collaborating to uncover common and innovative ways of staying creative and generating new ideas.
  • Think differently about innovation, comparing creativity across cultures,discussing how COVID-19 and global trends boost innovations and influence our future.
