Travers McLeodLooking for Long-Termism.

What do people think of when they hear the phrase ‘think tank’?

Travers McLeod, CPD’s CEO believes the phrase think tank is too abstract. In a recent article for Generosity Magazine Travers points out that most Australian’s wouldn’t know what a think tank is. Sam Gibbs, author of the article, discusses the phrase with Travers. The concern is that it might not clearly convey CPD as an independent research body with no alignments to political parties, one of the few ‘think tank’s that discloses its funding. CPD aims to find long term solutions to challenges that face Australia.

“CPD’s mandate is to inject new ideas into Australia’s public policy debates. Its research papers and community of research fellows are charged with the task of “reimagining” the public sphere, of seeking out new ways of thinking about the state of the country, and of translating policy discussions for the general public.”
