We took our group of Young Philosophers on their first trip of 2016-17 to conduct some philosophical explorations around London Bridge. We went to City Hall and the nearby Unicorn Theatre to watch a play called 'Baddies: The Musical'. How do you know if you're a good person? Is it OK to be bad in some people's eyes? We continue to wonder...

“We should select young people who shine in philosophy and who would not otherwise get to see certain places and have those opportunities; then we take them there and give them those opportunities, as philosophers”.
Inspired by these words (or something pretty close to them), the impact of The Philosophy Foundation’s (TPF) World Philosophy Day activities and mindful of the lack of experiences and opportunities that many children we work with have, we set up the ‘Young Philosophers’ programme.
