Recreation providers and researchers need to find better ways to foster creativity in youth worldwide. Many of the world’s problems can best be solved by innovative and interdisciplinary approaches and we must provide opportunities through leisure and informal learning opportunities to develop and sustain creative problem solving in our young people.

As part of its efforts to foster greater awarenessof the issues, the Commission on Children and Youth is sponsoring this collection of documents including annual reports, technical reports, theses and dissertations, and white papers, among others. There are gems of wisdom in these documents that represent best and innovative practices.
