School of Creative Thinking

In the late 1970s, two professors of the University of Antwerp were convinced that applying creative thinking was necessary for the opportunities and problems the world was facing. They started the Center for the Development of Creative Thinking (COCD). In the 21st century, the center has evolved into the School of Creative Thinking with a team of experienced professionals and a large international network. And we still believe that creativity helps you with change. Whether it concerns being resilient and flexible, coming up with solutions for complex problems and uncommon situations or aiming for a sustainable result. You need your creativity. We help you to rely on it.
