Our Mission / Objective
The Foundation promotes understanding across the community of the human place in nature and of the full spectrum of ecological and related health issues that confront our society today.
Our aim is to bring about an ecologically and socially sustainable human society that also respects and acknowledges other species. We believe that healthy people come from a healthy society and both are grounded on a health planet. We propose the route to sustainability is be creating a biosensitive society.
Biosensitivity is an attitude and approach to living on this planet respectful of and in harmony with the Earth’s natural systems, the other beings, and ourselves.
The Frank Fenner Foundation engages with the community through a number of different initiatives: see our current projects
Communities, Families, individuals
Projects in Progress
EcoriumXChange: A proposal for a space (virtual and physical) for individuals, businesses and governments to develop and exchange biosensitive practices.
EcoriumXChange Ginninderry: A 'living laboratory' where biosensitive practices relating to the built environment can be explored, researched and implemented in a real-life housing development.
Schools Program: Engaging high school students in human ecology and how to develop biosenstive practices for their own schools in partnership with the Riverview Group.
Patron’s corner: hear from one of the leading minds in human ecology and the founder of biosensitivity, Stephen Boyden.
Research: We collaborate with researchers from ANU and University of Canberra to collate and promote biosensitive practices that address sustainable solutions to the global threats we face.
Our Social media present - online magazine - http://www.afranklife.org/ where readers are encouraged to share their own challenges and experiences in applying biosensitive practices
