the messi project : how a kid educated a community
What happens when we take a curious look at the world of one person and
gently invite them in to a community to share their knowledge and experience? A co-creative discovery adventure.
Teachers at a local school were stumped by one individual who seemed bright but unreachable. A project grew around this young person’s needs that took account of his interests and brought in local experts to share a learning adventure. The Findhorn Ecovillage in the north east of Scotland became the campus for this initiative for a period of 18 months.
