Philosopher’s Backpack

We have teamed up with Jane Yates, a lead practitioner for global learning, to create a teaching tool that has a history. Philosophy for Children (P4C) is a learning programme where children are encouraged to think for themselves, and to create their own philosophy out of their responses to the Philosopher’s ‘kit’ presented to them.

Research in P4C provides evidence that it not only increases thinking and listening skills, but also skills of communication, self-esteem, confidence, behaviour and engagement with learning across subject areas

Sounds good to us.

An ethical backpack as a visual prompt and to carry the tools needed for exploration into philosophical thinking is needed. This is where we step in!

We have designed and built a small backpack using only recycled materials for this purpose.

The Backpack features:

Embroidered lid

Straps reinforced with climbing rope.

Recycled canvas tent and fabric offcuts from local manufacturers.

Buckles and webbing repurposed from life jackets, tents and rucksacks.

Colours may vary.
