Shaping the future through groundbreaking research.
Australia21 is an independent, non-profit organisation whose core purpose is multidisciplinary research and inquiry on issues of strategic im portance to Australia in the 21st century.
"One of the best ways to demonstrate concern about our country and our community is to contribute to shaping their future" - Paul Barratt AO Chairman Australia21.
Australia21 offers the excitement of new thinking about the linkage between research and policy. We believe that ideas matter and that they can be harnessed effectively in the interests of Australian society by extending public discourse across research and policy boundaries.
Our capacity to convene expertise from across the nation means that we are able to delve into issues differently from a conventional university or research institution. We also provide a unique way for business, industry and government to meet socially responsible goals and promote long-term Australian public good and well-being.
We investigate issues important to Australia’s future under 5 broad themes
- Australians in Society
- Australians in the Landscape
- Australia in the World
- Building Australia’s Resilience
- Australia’s Next Big Question
Each of these programs is led by an expert and may include several projects. Using our extensive networks we draw together a multidisciplinary team with relevant expertise and experience for each project. Read more...
