Australia is a magnificent nation. But we’re facing challenges on important, long-term issues and we’re failing to respond fast and well.
At Australian Futures Project, we stimulate and support leaders, experts, and the community to identify, test, and build initiatives to create the Australia we want tomorrow, today. Our unique approach has a proven track record in addressing complex challenges.
By working with government, business, media, experts, and the public, we’re delivering on our mission to improve how Australia creates its future.
We deploy our six capabilities with a focus on:
Improving Australians' understanding of key challenges and opportunities facing our country
Increasing the quality of discussion towards the future Australians want
Increasing the quality of action towards the future Australians want
