The 'Urban Survival Pack' by New Zealand designer Ryan Romanes is designed to combat poverty in cities by providing solutions for people with limited space and money. The compact boxed kit is put together with inexpensive materials like oriented strand board (OSB) and cardboard, which can be easily reused or recycled.

The contents of the kit include a bit of everything, like essential tools for emergency situations, gardening tools and seeds.

These boxes are meant to be used as educational items in schools to teach children how to survive in a city. Survival kits traditionally contain equipment for roughing it in the wilderness and Romanes' 'Urban Survival Pack' is an interesting take on habits that should be instilled in youth for survival in an urban setting.
