Urban Survival Pack is a minimalist design created by Zealand-based designer Ryan Romanes. The task was to create and design a considered solution to the contributing factors of urban poverty. The solution came in the form of an Urban Survival Pack for children, to be placed in schools for use as an instructional device by teachers. Its tactility and playful shape invites the users to engage with the device while learning through play.

The 20cm square kit is constructed of acrylic and Oriented Strand Board. While the OSB exterior provides protection, the acrylic is designed to be water proof. Contained inside of the pack are 12 cardboard tubes, varying in sizes. Three sizes of tubes contain emergency equipment, gardening utensils, seeds and seed raising mixture. The six smaller tubes containing vegetable seeds are designed with the intention of being re-used as miniature pot plants.  The Urban Survival pack aims to implement new behavioural habits from a young age. The gardening pack not only teaches children about where their food comes from, it also gives them a sense of ownership, responsibility and most importantly entrepreneurship.
