Think tank for the public good

Paul Barratt, Chair of Australia21

“One of the best ways to demonstrate concern about our country and our community is to contribute to shaping their future.” Paul Barratt AO, Chair of Australia21

Say ‘yes’ to smarter solutions for Australia’s big issues

Worried about the future we’re creating?

Are you concerned about the environment, inequality, the future of work, drug laws, the wellbeing of young people? Australia is facing many big issues that need smarter solutions.



Feeling powerless to change anything?

What we need is intelligent public debate, based on sound research, honest evidence and fresh ideas.


Australia21 unravels national problems and builds smarter solutions.

We bring together experts, decision makers, business people, researchers and ordinary Australians like you and me, to check the evidence and come up with fair, sustainable and inclusive laws and policies to fix national problems. We focus on the issues, not the politics.




Now you can help Australia21 shape a better future — and double your impact!

Say ‘yes’ to smarter solutions and a better future, by donating to Australia21.

Until June 30, your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar by core supporters, up to our target of $40,000. That means if we reach the target, we’ll unlock AN EXTRA $40,000 to run three more collaborative projects on the big issues confronting Australia.

All donations of $2 and over are tax deductible.


Get informed. Be heard. Shape the future.
