We believe that learning should be fun.We know that participants take their lessons home with them. Living in nature teachesresponsibility. Breathtaking views, fond memories of peace and solitude, the success ofa summit, the joy of carrying one’s life in a pack all stick with FQ graduates. Thesemoments inspire them to scale back, re-use, simplify, and take responsibility for theirlives and their decisions.And, because leadership can be learned—and is learned on these courses—people areequipped to turn that inspiration and responsibility into real change. FQ participants willchange their world because they are inspired. They can change their world becausethey’re informed.
