World Intellectual Property 2022 highlights the enormous potential of young people to develop new and better solutions to help the world transition to a more sustainable future.
Young people all over the world are rising to the challenge of innovation, applying their energy, inventiveness, curiosity, and imagination to chart a road for a brighter future.
Young people all over the world are rising to the challenge of innovation, applying their energy, inventiveness, curiosity, and imagination to chart a road for a brighter future. Innovative, active, and creative brains are assisting in the implementation of the necessary reforms to move toward a more sustainable future. Learn how intellectual property rights can help tomorrow's youngsters build a better world.
World Intellectual Property Day this year celebrates youth-led innovation and creativity under the subject "IP and Youth: Innovating for a Better Future."
Today's youth are a wonderful and largely untapped reservoir of innovation and resourcefulness.
Their new insights, energy, curiosity, and "can-do" attitude, not to mention their desire for a brighter future, are already changing ways and pushing change.
World Intellectual Property Day 2022 provides a chance for young people to learn how IP rights can help them achieve their goals, produce revenue, create jobs, and have a good impact on the world around them. Young people have access to some of the most important instruments for achieving their goals thanks to intellectual property rights.
Young people will be able to obtain a greater knowledge of how the IP system's tools - trademarks, design rights, copyright, patents, plant variety rights, geographical indications, trade secrets, and more – can help them achieve their goals of building a better future throughout the campaign.
We also examine WIPO's involvement in assisting national and regional efforts to build a legal and policy climate conducive to the success of young innovators, creators, and entrepreneurs.
We observed record levels of participation in World Intellectual Property Day last year. World Intellectual Property Day 2022 will reach new heights with your aid.
Young people are the future's innovators, creators, and entrepreneurs. Young people in all regions are pushing change and building paths to a better future through their creativity and inventiveness. This dynamic generation of change-makers will be honoured on World Intellectual Property Day 2022.
Millennials and Generation Z: Tomorrow's Creators
Today's youth are a fantastic, largely untapped reservoir of innovation and resourcefulness. In today's world, there are around 1.8 billion young people (aged 24). They live in ninety percent of the world's poorer countries. In the future years, the proportion of young individuals (under 35) is expected to rise. Young people are natural agents of change in all regions, paving the way for a better future.
Change-makers, Millennials and Generation Z are pragmatists who aren't scared to speak up and challenge the current quo. The youngsters of today are digital natives. They grew up in a world where the barriers between the actual and digital worlds were blurred, thanks to mobile phones and the Internet. As a result, a generation that is probably the most entrepreneurial, innovative, and creative in history has emerged.
Calling all young people: whatever your goals are — the arts, science, or technology – a creative and innovative attitude backed by intellectual property rights will enable you to make a difference. Participate in this year's campaign to learn more about IP and what it can achieve for you.
We urge governments around the world to pay attention to the needs and concerns of young inventors, creators, and entrepreneurs, and to adopt policies and programmes that nurture and support their efforts to innovate for the betterment of society.
World Intellectual Property Day 2022 will be a hybrid campaign due to ongoing COVID-related constraints.
