They say “Necessity is the Mother of invention” but who’s the Father of invention?
Creativity is the Father of invention and the most interesting thing is that everyone is creative
We all are rich in diverse creative potentials and its only if we unleash our creativity that we can be able to tackle some of the world’s most complex environmental challenges.
