1000 Flowers for the Planet #623 Observe Inventors Day
Today is Inventor’s day – well it is in Argentina. Not every country recognises Inventor’s Day, which is celebrated on different dates in various countries around the world. 29th September is the birthday of the inventor of the ballpoint pen, László József Bíró. Each country celebrates the day for a different reason and in different ways.
This flower suggestion is for all of us everywhere to celebrate inventors and their gifts to humanity, particularly those ideas that will create a better future. We need inventors, particularly as we head into the future with an awareness of how much damage is being done to the planet by our current actions. We need inventors to create sustainable energy sources, sustainable farming and building practices, ways to stop encroaching on natural habitats, ways to live in harmony with the planet – there’s a lot of work to be done. Let’s encourage more inventive thought, at every level, and take care of this planet better than ever.
