Smarter solutions for Australia’s big issues

Australia21 is an independent, not-for-profit think tank. We promote fair, sustainable and inclusive public policy through evidence-based research.

We bring together experts, decision makers, business people, academics and ordinary Australians to tackle real-world ‘wicked’ problems — complicated social,  health, economic, environmental and national security dilemmas that defy simple solutions. We focus on the issues, not the politics.

Get informed. Be heard. Shape the future.
