Towards an inclusive society for children and parents

We design pubic space and community with consideration of development of children.

What is Plus Two?

Plus Two is the concept to create a positive change in society through fun, excitement, and surprise by connecting we “plus” two parties.

We envision inclusive society for children and contribute towards such society by providing consulting service to design and create an inclusive pubic space. 

Our approach got inspired by behavioral science as well as Montessori education method. Action and movement towards change comes from mind but mind is very much influenced by how environment is designed.

Our vision and approach is in line with UN’s Social Development Goals (SDGs).

We make inclusive space and cities by creating a bridge for children and parents who tend to be excluded from public space.
We make change towards child inclusive cities by providing access to public spaces by designing them inclusive.
We provide learning opportunities for children and parents not in the classroom but in the events held at the various local shops, spaces, natural environments and attractive people in town.
We will collaborate with parents with grown up children to contribute their quality and memorable toys to sumicco where toys are to be handed over to the next generation with their memories.

Our project include “sumicco” which create small but carefully designed space for children in the stores, retailers etc thereby making change towards child inclusive cities. “Machinooyako” is the community building initiative where for both parents and children they have a chance to meet new people and new experiences on their own. In this community, children is inclusive i.e.,not dependent on adults. They share roles and do what the can in their capacity.
