The Australian National Values Assessment was commissioned by the Australian Futures Project through the Barrett Values Centre and Corporate Evolution. It was based on a statistically valid poll of over 1,000 Australians conducted by Galaxy Research in February 2016.


The results showed the top 10 things that Australians care most about. These were used to define the challenges that were the focus of our My Big Idea initiative. The challenges were about reflecting the true concerns of Australians, and tapping into the public’s ideas to resolve them.
