Help with an idea.

Zac Solomon (@zacsolomon) 8 years, 10 months ago

I have this really great idea and I think it could be a lot better with other input. I want to start a non-official, low-key, “not a club” club at my school. The club would meet once a week, there would be no money, no field-trips or community service for college apps, nothin’. Whole point of the club would be discussion towards enlightenment. We would just discuss the world and share ideas. To decide the topic to discuss, each person would get a vote, we’d draw out of a hat. How could I make this idea better? Ir’s simple and I like that, but how could it get better?

Sounds like an awesome idea to me. Wish i would have thought of this while i was in HS.

Taking trips would be really cool though.

@zacsolomon basically highexistence but in classroom form? I like it. Best idea would be get down what you would like to talk about, maybe summarize in genres and general groups what topics you would like to cover, and that will attract the necessary audience, then, considering the people able to participate would be great thinkers, get together and initially talk about how you would all like to run the club, possibly keep a log of different rules/principles you would like to abide by (always ask questions, question everything, never dismiss new ideas, seek to understanding etc). Then you could also agree on who talks when, and for how long, how far off topic you would let things go, and what topics you would like to cover as well.

I basically just tried to give you my approach to running something of this nature and those are the avenues i covered.

@zacsolomon, There is a club like that at my school, and it’s called Solutions. This is how they define themselves:
“We are an interdisciplinary forum-type organization that seeks to promote intellectual debate in a non-academic setting.”

They pretty much just meet once a week and talk, usually about the most current, relevant, and controversial issues.
