Listen. Think. Question. These are the essentials of critical thinking necessary to navigate the complexity and conflict of the world today.
“Young Plato” shows how kids can engage in philosophical inquiry, master the art of diplomacy on the school yard, and have fun in the process.
The "Young Plato" team is developing an interactive media impact campaign in order to reach diverse, targeted audiences and make the guided process of learning and practicing philosophy shown in "Young Plato" accessible to many more children, teachers and parents.
The educational tool-kit will feature lesson plans developed in partnership with the Philosophy Foundations whose proven model for transforming school culture and improving learning outcomes is shown in the film.
We are actively seeking partners and funders to support this effort, and make the film and resources free to under- resourced communities.
We are building a movement around the contemporary value of classic philosophy for young students. Won’t you join us?
