Creative is a word often used to describe artists or musicians. But as its root word suggests, creative can be used to define anyone with the ability to conceive an idea and make it a reality. In this issue Lift celebrates Cambodians who have used their mind to create new ideas, images and solutions, and also looks at the factors stifling more creativity in the Kingdom. Our pages are always filled with stories written by creative youth about their equally creative peers. But this week we hone in on what it means to be creative and what youth and their educators can do to encourage more innovation among young Cambodians.
Also check out our preview of the final episode of this season of the Youth Leadership Challenge (page 13) and the third instalment of “The Constructive Cambodian,” (page 15) in which Kounila Keo makes a call for Cambodians to come together to lift the country’s women.
