Picture of sea vessel plough through rough maritime conditions

Innovations in marine technology, pioneered through Open Access research...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research here explores the potential of marine renewables, such as offshore wind, current and wave energy devices to promote the delivery of diverse energy sources. Expertise in offshore hydrodynamics in offshore structures also informs innovations within the oil and gas industries. But as a world-leading centre of marine technology, the Department is recognised as the leading authority in all areas related to maritime safety, such as resilience engineering, collision avoidance and risk-based ship design. Techniques to support sustainability vessel life cycle management is a key research focus.

Although as teachers, social workers, counsellors, community educators and parents we encounter children in a range of settings, very rarely do we think about children in terms of what they essentially are. This paper will reflect upon the notion of ‘child’ and will consider why it is important for society, and not just those who work with children, to reflect upon children and their place and role in society. It will be suggested that we need not only think about children but that to engender children’s participation in society we want thinking children, philosophical children.
