Community is where we discover our strengths and interests, and feel a sense of belonging. Where we have the opportunity to develop an understanding and appreciation of others as we live together and share experiences. Our connection to the world begins with participation in our local communities.
Learningis part of our everyday experiences in life. When we think of it this way, learning becomes more accessible, and common than traditional ideas of education. By experiencing, thinking, and talking with others we have the opportunity to try new things, share ideas, and see our world from multiple perspectives.
A learning community provides an opportunity for all kinds of different people to learn together and explore the world in many ways. By engaging with topics, activities and each other at a grass-roots level we create curiosity, deepen our understanding of ourselves and of each other, and find a place in which to learn from and live in our local and global community.
