Innovation should be taught as a subject at school, according to research from Wellington's Creative HQ.

It surveyed 150 young people aged 12 to 24 across 20 countries, and found that 96 per cent want innovation to be part of the school curriculum.

89 per cent of the Gen Z respondents said they believe innovation to be crucial to improving the world around them, and just over three quarters considered themselves as innovative.
