Who Owns The Sky?

Who Owns The Sky?

Two communities living along the same river come into conflict when one decides to build a dam...

This film explores the concept of ownership of natural resources and whether they can be shared, and even stolen. It encourages children to consider if and how natural resources like water can be owned and what happens when one community benefits from it at the expense of another.

Adapted from The Water Catchers by Jason Buckley

Fun and engaging short films exploring fundamental philosophical concepts through everyday questions that children ask, and adults often struggle to answer.

The films provide a springboard into wider philosophical exploration and debate in the classroom and beyond, considering concepts such as morality, identity and fairness, and aim to help Key Stage 2 students to think logically, laterally and creatively.

There are two versions of each story: one that includes a breakout to class discussion for additional guidance, and one with just the stories, for you to use in the way that works best for you.
