In case you didn't realise, 2009 is the European Year of Creativity and Innovation. So go forth and be creative, this is an order!
Well ok, even though I don't believe that creativity can be produced by bureaucratic devices (dear old Tony Blair would have set targets and benchmarks for this, as in: we are going to increase creativity by 35 % this year and cut boredom by 80% by the year 2020!), it may be worth keeping an eye on create 2009 in case they come up with any interesting events.
The official launch of the year of creativity is happening at Brussels on the 20th of this month.
So let's all have a very creative year ...
