Similarities over differences
touchable.earth is a second passport for every child. It grants citizenship based on shared values of curiosity and inclusiveness. I’m a refugee who experienced exclusion first hand based on my political status. My children are also refugees but in touchable.earth they are first and foremost children – just like yours.

The kind of change Touchable Earth makes possible could not be more urgent and critical. It is essential for Peace and Sustainability. School systems around the world have embraced an approach to improvement that is excessively focused on the development of a narrow range of cognitive skills: literacy, numeracy and science. Important as those are they miss the mark. What schools most urgently need is not to get better at achieving the goals of the past, it is to stay relevant in helping students gain the skills that enable them to invent the future, and to do it in a way that appropriately address the challenges of our times.
Director of the Global Education Innovation Initiative
Respect for broader and different cultural values makes possible dialog that might otherwise never happen. I am much encouraged by what I see in the Internet and its applications like touchable.earth. As communication and computing infrastructure becomes more affordable and available, they cannot help but unleash the ideas of young minds too young to know you can’t do that!
