India, : Designated by the United Nations, the World Creativity Innovation Day is a global celebration of the importance of creativity and innovation in tackling real world problems. With an intent to commemorate the idea that the UN day stands for, and to tap into creativity for developing innovative solutions, an Indian technology player has launched the World Citizen Development Week on Innovation Day from 17-21 April 2023.
