At Project World School we strive to bring these things to our community: flexibility, relatability, support and inclusion, and we do so in many different ways. At our Summits, these are some of the more notable ways that we do that:
We encourage everybody to practice fluidity and open mindedness by not making a schedule available beforehand. We believe that this is in alignment with how we worldschool. Sometimes, we won’t have all of the information and we need to learn that that is okay.
Our speakers are all sourced from within our community. We do this for two reasons: one, to give members of our community a platform to speak, share and promote, and two, to ensure that the sessions, roundtables and workshops are relevant and relatable to our summit attendants.
We also seek to normalize the worldschooling experience for the children of our community by facilitating connection and play with other children who are following a similar life path. Simply knowing that they’re not alone builds confidence, and having the support of like-minded friends can help stave off the feelings of isolation that commonly affect our children.
And lastly, Project World School aims to keep the summits small and personal. Though the summits are structured as conferences, they feel more like casual, intimate and supportive gatherings, and it is with this spirit in mind that each of the summits are planned, structured and marketed.
But, with all of that being said, we also welcome people who are less familiar with worldschooling to attend our summit. At Project World School, we pride ourselves on the spirit of inclusiveness and acceptance that we foster within our community and we recognize that everybody is on their own learning path and that is something that should be celebrated.
