Australian Symposium for Trusted, Long-term Decision-making

The Australian Symposium for Trusted, Long-term Decision-making was a deliberative event that met on two occasions, in Melbourne on October 31 and in Sydney on November 22. The Symposium was jointly convened by a range of individuals and organisations including the Australian Institute of Company Directors, Foundation 1901, newDemocracy Foundation, The Benevolent Society, University of Melbourne and University of Technology Sydney. The remit of the Symposium was finding common ground when addressing the question:

 

What changes can we agree upon to deliver effective long-term decision-making which earns public trust?

 

The participants produced a recommendations report listing eight key recommendations that addressed trusted, long-term decision-making, and democracy in Australia more broadly. 

 

 

The newDemocracy Foundation performed secretariat services for the Symposium, in addition to Founder Luca Belgiorno-Nettis and Board Member Kathy Jones participating in the Symposium.
