The Frank Fenner Foundation seeks to catalyse far-reaching social and cultural change by promoting an understanding of the place of humans and their societies in the natural world. We aim to promote the changes for long term human survival and prosperity through education and research, focusing on how we can live respectfully in-tune and integrated with other species and our planet Earth.
We call this the biosensitive approach.
Biosensitivity is the pathway to an ecologically and socially sustainable, just and equitable human society.
