Schools program

The Foundation is developing an education program in partnership with the Riverview group. The initial program will be a Year-11 schools’ module and an online publication of a series of interactive discussions/lectures. This program aims to engage participants in exploring the human place in nature, framed through the ecological impact of the human presence on earth (the planet without humans, the hunter-gatherer phase, the early framing phase, early urban phase and the current fourth ‘exponential’ phase), and then in discussing the ‘where to next’ for human evolution - a society that generates crisis amongst other species and ecosystems and increasing disease and disparity for humans OR one based on understanding the human place in nature and that is sensitive to, in tune with and respectful of the processes of life – a society the Frank Fenner Foundation calls a biosensitive society.
