“Today, more than anything, life needs hope,” says TED Fellow Yana Buhrer Tavanier.
Hope is an optimistic state of mind that is based on an expectation of positive outcomes with respect to events and circumstances in one's life or the world at large. I’m afraid that whatever I say, it will come across as superficial as I’m speaking from a privileged position. But one small thing that has stood out to me is the agility, resilience and perseverance of human creativity. I’m not talking only about people in the creative industries, but about the countless ways that everyone is sharing. Creativity and art in all their shapes and forms keep us sane in difficult times. We, humans, are beautiful creatures, especially in hard times. We’re able to show unity, love, and might, beyond any boundaries. We see it every day around the world. We are dedicating the Winter issue to the HOPE and Ukraine .
