We just completed our second Co-Creative Lab at Florida State University. This lab was entirely co-led by two of our student facilitators, Josh Mesnik and Zach Kaye. It provided a structured forum for all the participants to explore their values, aspirations, purpose, and their contribution to society. The weekly engagement and discussions revolved around the five pillars of our core curriculum: choice, purpose, fearlessness, interconnectedness, and a bigger picture. All of the students expressed a great appreciation for the project, feeling the content was inspiring, fundamental to their personal growth, and key to their exploration of future directions. At the end of the course, they all conveyed a deeper sense of confidence and strength in their ability to deal with difficult choices and find their own path in life. They also valued the opportunity to address these fundamental questions together with their peers in a structured and formal way.
"One expression of freedom together, is to be prepared to take responsibility for the culture of the future. So many things that we see as fate is because we don’t dare to take responsibility. The QUESTion Project is taking a promising step towards impacting the culture of education.”
