Sadly, our dear friend and Understandascope founder, Professor Frank Fisher, passed away late last year. The Frank Fisher Memorial Fund was launched in his name to further his legacy through the education and sustainability programs of the Understandascope.
Frank was the Inaugural Australian Environmental Educator of the Year in 2007, in recognition of three decades of pioneering work in the field. Much of that time was as Associate Professor in the School of Geography and Environmental Science at Monash University near Melbourne. He then spent seven years at Swinburne University of Technology, at the National Centre for Sustainability, where he was the Convenor of Graduate Programs in sustainability, and the Faculty of Design, where he was Professor of Sustainability.
Frank was also part of the ground-breaking group that began OASES Graduate School, a not-for-profit tertiary organisation based in Hawthorn, where the Understandascope is now based.
This is the first financial appeal since Frank passed away. Please donate generously. For more information about the Fund and the work of the Understandascope, click here.
