The World Intellectual Property Organization invites all Member States and stakeholders to join in celebrating World Intellectual Property Day on April 26, 2024. The 2024 World Intellectual Property Day campaign theme is IP and the SDGs: Building our common future with innovation and creativity.

World Intellectual Property Day has become a global event, with celebrations taking place in every region. In 2024, we celebrate changemakers worldwide who are driving the innovation and creativity needed to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and build a better and more sustainable future for everyone.
Intellectual Property (IP) is central to addressing our global challenges. IP is a powerful catalyst for growth and development and, as such, has a vital role to play in improving livelihoods and safeguarding our planet. World Intellectual Property Day 2024 is an opportunity to showcase the central role that IP, innovation, and creativity play in achieving the SDGs for the benefit of everyone.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by the international community in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, both now and in the future. 17 SDGs underpin the 2030 Agenda. The SDGs are an urgent call to action for all countries to unite in a global partnership to carve pathways to a better and more sustainable future.

To build our shared future and achieve the SDGs, we need to rethink how we live, work, and play. World Intellectual Property Day 2024 is an opportunity to explore how intellectual property encourages and can amplify the innovative and creative solutions crucial to building our shared future.
