Across the globe, young people are stepping up to innovation challenges, using their energy and ingenuity, their curiosity and creativity to steer a course towards a better future.
It is also known as World IP Day. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, it is necessary to be safe therefore, WIPO is not organising any physical events, and encourages the community of World IP Day to celebrate via virtual channels. The day is celebrated to make people know how intellectual property (IP) rights encourage innovation and creativity.
This year World IP Day puts innovation and supports the efforts to create a green future. It is a need to care for our earth and our home.
This year, the World Intellectual Property Day 2022’s theme focuses on ‘IP and Youth: innovating for a Better Future’.
In 2000, WIPO’s member states designated April 26, the day on which the WIPO Convention came into force in 1970. They want to minimise the gap between IP as a business or legal concept and its relevance to people’s lives.
