Connecting the Dots: World IP Day 2024

By April 26, 2024IP Insights

Every year on April 26th, the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) commemorates World Intellectual Property (IP) Day to celebrate the role that intellectual property rights play in encouraging innovation and creativity.

This year’s theme for World IP Day focuses on the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), highlighting how IP can contribute to sustainability and innovation, building a better common future for us all.

The focus on Sustainable Development Goals underscores the link between IP and global challenges such as climate change, health, and social equity. By securing IP rights, creators can safely develop solutions to pressing global issues, contributing to a sustainable and resilient society.
