The Learn2Think Foundation is a charitable company (charity number 1170088) focused on empowering the young through the development of creative, independent and compassionate thinking. Developing this approach to thinking deeply about the larger questions in life, children can be equipped with the tools not simply to challenge the status quo, but to prepare them for the challenges they face in a rapidly changing world.
The Foundation is also intended to be an umbrella to promote any and all organisations that want to help achieve the positive change we want to see in our children, our society and our future.
Learn2Think is many different things: a mission, a cause, a way to think, an approach to life, a community. It's an incubator of new thoughts, new ideas and new approaches to the way we educate our children, not least of which is the belief that if we make enough small changes, we have the power to change the world around us.
We encourage the development of philosophical enquiry within the mainstream school curriculum, based on P4C, the philosophical pedagogy introduced by SAPERE (for more information, please explore our History). Children are natural philosophers, asking universal and instinctive questions about why we're here, how we got here, why in the form we did and what happens next. Learn2Think's goal is to ensure that the courage, creativity and intellectual freedom to ask such questions remains a normal part of children's lives as they grow.
We also work with our sister company, Rapscallion Press, to develop children's books exploring the big questions in life: what happens after we die, how did we come to exist, what does friendship mean? Each of these books is published alongside a campaign which aims to see copies of each philosophy book gifted to as many children's primary schools and libraries around the country as possible.
We know that something as worthy sounding as 'philosophical enquiry' needs to be understood in order to be successful. So we also promote philosophical enquiries for teachers, businesses, NGOs and any others who want to understand more about how critical thinking can help them in their work, in their lives and in their approach to the world around them.
