Australia21 is pleased to announce we have been joined by a new Executive Officer, Susan Davidson, who brings outstanding experience and skills to our team. Susan has held leadership positions within several organisations spanning the corporate, government and not-for-profit sectors, most recently with Diabetes Australia.
The Federal Budget is a reflection of the vision and values of the government of the day. So what does the 2018 Budget say about Australia’s current leadership and the direction it’s setting for our nation? Australia21 has unpacked the policy decisions and the messages they convey, as well as the post-Budget commentary. Now Chair, Paul Barratt, delivers our verdict.
Australia21 Director Deborah Rice asks the question of our times: do today’s young people have the ability the manage the mess they are about to inherit? The answer may surprise you.
Policy was often ignored in favour of politicking in Australia’s parliaments in 2017, so Australia21 has set out a roadmap to keep our MPs on track through 2018. We urge them to tackle issues that really matter this year, where evidence shows the nation will benefit from apolitical discussion and sensible decisions.
As the year comes to a close, Australia21 is proud to release our 2016-17 Annual Report. We did a lot with very little over the period, running nationally significant projects, boosting our profile and calibrating the goals that will keep us powering on through 2017-2018.
Help Australia21 improve public policy decision-making through high quality, evidence-based research to ensure a fair, sustainable and inclusive future.
