Touchable Earth is the first app where kids teach kids about the world. Taught entirely by school age children in short videos, Touchable Earth promotes tolerance for gender, culture, and identity.
Touchable Earth was founded in 2012 by New Zealand cousins Tudor Clee and Tom Clarkson. The primary goal of creating Touchable Earth is to promote tolerance in gender, culture, and identity.
We created the first app where kids teach kids about the world. The four pillars of Touchable Earth are:
Taught by kids
Aged 8-11 years old
An equal representation of girls
Inclusive of all identities
Touchable Earth increases what children know about the world. More importantly it improves how they understand it. The program develops critical thinking skills essential for a lifetime of learning.
Normalizing diversity: The definition of ‘diversity’ is challenged and presented as a part of ‘us’ rather than ‘them’. Children learn to value a message based on it's merits not the identity of the presenter.
