SEATPACK AND CLIMATE ACTION

HOW IS SEATPACK INVOLVED WITH CLIMATE ACTION?


We propose replacing high-carbon wooden-desks with low-carbon Bamboo using SeatPacks; Schoolbags turning into Bamboo classroom-chairs with portable writing-surfaces for African school children in rural / refugee settlement schools studying without sitting or writing facilities (both indoors and outdoors).


Over 95-million African school children currently attend class without a place to sit or write. Majorly because tree-timber furniture (wooden-desks) averagely costs €90 to make and sit 2-children. With Africa's population projected to over 550-million school children by 2040, where currently 1-desk requires cutting down 1-tree, a very high environmental and economic cost is inevitable.

The SeatPack in use by Pius, a student in Wakiso - Uganda. Pius dreams to be a pilot some day.


The low-cost €15 per unit SeatPack eliminates any need for tree-cutting to ensure sitting and writing during classes while unlocking scalable mobile classrooms (where each school child is, the classroom is too). SeatPack is currently in use by over 1,500 Ugandan school children since January 2022.
