Filosofiska's ambition is to build a cosmopolitan network of schools, which will be done by starting own schools or through collaboration with other schools and by doing so contributing to a more sustainable development of the world.
Secondary objectives: see www.filosofiska.nu

Main Projects / Activities

Filosofiska is today running non-profit preschools in Sweden and is taking over a non-profit primary school (grade 0-9) in 2016.
In Nepal, Filosofiska has taken the initiative to open a preschool and a primary school for vulnerable children. This school is financed by Filosofiska and other donors.
In 2014 Filosofiska was selected by the municipality of Stockholm to represent them at a fair for different "good examples".
Educators from Filosofiska have been invited to schools in other countries for exchange of knowledge and to lecture about their work. Educators from other countries have also visited Filosofiska's facilities to learn more.
In 2015 Filosofiska collaborated with the The Freedom Theatre, a community-based cultural centre in Jenin Refugee Camp, occupied Palestine, in a joint project partly financed by the Swedish Institute. The aim was to establish a non-profit child centre in Jenin refugee camp that would offer artistic and educational activities for children 0-5 years old, where Filosofiska would contribute its expertise in running activities for children and its unique philosophy.
