I have read through all the parts of your essay. Actually I think this is a difficult essay to write well. The best thing is to think of traditions that might stop innovation. Maybe things like religious ideas that stop people doing new things. I think you got confused between 'the past' and 'traditions'. Traditions are things that people do, maybe without even thinking about it, simply because they have always been done. So your first main paragraph needs to say whether we should keep or abandon traditions. The second paragraph should say what traditions we should keep. The first sentence of your introduction is good, it rewrites the question nicely.

I strongly believe that because of the conservation traditional values motivate people, and gives the possibility to integrate these into modern life, tradition and innovation can be combined. I made a comment in your previous post on this essay, and looked at the comment from GuideDogSaint below. I think another way of looking at this topic is looking at how many innovators are now looking back at traditional ways of doing things to solve problems. For example, in the 20th century, farming changed completely. This caused major problems (overuse of chemicals, problems with depleted soil, etc). So younger farmers looked back at traditional ways of planting and growing upon which to base their way of farming. Another area is medicine -- traditional ways of treating medicine can lead to innovations ('new' discoveries of how to use plants). Alternatively, you can argue that traditional ways of doing things is more humane (for example, burial traditions or traditions dealing with death or aging, etc)
