Given the digitalisation of society, with AI and robotics leading to automation prospects, skills that are less easy to automate such as creativity become more and more valued. Creativity has become increasingly important to ensure that we harness technology and continue to work together towards a more sustainable and humane world.
Observe, explore, envision, create and reflect. Creativity needs to be nurtured in order to look at things from different perspectives, understand the limits of one's and of others' views and to help transform their ideas into innovative solutions.
Working in a stimulating environment has surely given Costa Rica’s creative industries further encouragement, in addition to injecting this creative mindset to other sectors traditionally labeled as not creative. In a country with a highly educated population and ever more sophisticated buyers, animation, gaming, fashion, design, film, high cuisine and other careers in this sector are finding fertile ground.
