The Centre for Policy Development fosters a diverse, cross-disciplinary community of thinkers, and connects their ideas with a wider audience of concerned citizens, policy makers, and the media. We are pluralist – Australia faces increasingly complex challenges; there is often no one ‘right’ answer to problems such as climate change, dwindling water supplies, unsustainable debt or entrenched disadvantage. This makes a vigorous exchange of ideas more important than ever.

Thanks for your interest in joining us: your ideas can change Australia.  If you would like to contact us, please do so – we love to hear from our supporters.
