Why Recreation?

Recreation is a response to the needs of our time. It captures and represents these two fundamental motifs:

Recreation, as in creating - bringing something new into being. This means creating spaces for meaningful conversations, connections, and learning so that together, we can reimagine and build back better in education. It involves redesigning learning experiences and pushing the boundaries of what we know education to be.

Rècreation, as in leisure - in Greek, the word for school, scholé means leisure. Like in Ancient Greece, we believe pursuing education is to be at leisure. This is because education is not merely about preparing people to be productive in society. The goal for education is to seek truth and enjoy the process.
