At a TEDx event in Copenhagen, Balder Onarheim, PhD of the Copenhagen Institute of NeuroCreativity explains the importance for adults to re-learn creativity, and gives three tools to help us do so.

“Creativity is not just about art – it is one of the most crucial human traits. It lies at the heart of innovation, thus it is not a superficial skill but a necessity for human survival,” says Orarheim. “Growing up makes us less creative. Therefore we have to re-learn creativity, and luckily there are multiple ways to do so.”
