Here is a sentence from a student's pursuasion map on the topic 'Careers': 'Civilization is developed due to creative people.'
I would say 'Civilization has evolved/developed due to creative people.'
What is your opinion?

Thank you in advance.

    I would use the active voice: "Civilisation develops/evolves due to ......".
    Your suggestion is also fine if we are talking about the past up until now. The present tense is more of a generalisation.
