The Creative Soft Skills team knows that beauty will save the world 

As the Creative Soft Skills journey comes to an end, the project partners are more convinced than ever that the ability to effectively recognise, strengthen and harness the innate creativity inside us all is fundamental to drive innovation and growth, individually and collectively.
