Social enterprise Invisible Cities will help children explore other countries from the safety of home via a packed subscription box “for would-be adventurers”.
Delivered every three months, each Invisible Cities World Tour box will theme its contents around a different country to let kids learn about the world even when the pandemic makes travel more difficult.
The Invisible Cities project, created by Big Issue Changemaker Zakia Moulaoui Guery, trains people who have experienced homelessness to become walking tour guides of their own city. It launched in Edinburgh in 2014 before branching out to other parts of the UK including Manchester, Glasgow, York and Cardiff.
Created in collaboration with Strawberry Lemonade Events and Party in the Post, the subscription boxes will contain a World Tour Passport so kids can collect stamps for the countries they explore every three months.
And the first instalment, focused on Scotland, will include an activity book and recipe card; a unicorn cookie cutter; a colouring page and colouring pencils; a unique Scottish game; a Scottish postcard and exclusive access to a story from Edinburgh guide Paul.
We are launching!!! https://t.co/fdBvVtqC8b
