How Democracy 2025 is making a difference
We are igniting a national conversation about our democratic practice and building a new generation of democratically engaged Australians.
Democracy 2025’s six core programs will be delivered in partnership with national and international leaders in their fields.
Public Trust Index
The creation of a Public Trust Index will set a baseline for the measurement and improvement of Australian democratic practice and integrates the four key elements that influence public trust — integrity, transparency, accountability and participation — into a single democratic dashboard.
Ignite Learning program
MoAD’s onsite schools’ learning programs currently reach 85,000+ students each year. Through Ignite, a new digital-based education program, we aim to reach every student in Australia.
As a first for Australia, the Democracy Lab will bring together the public, experts, politicians and government officials at Old Parliament House to co-design solutions for some of our big national challenges and experiment with new forms of democratic innovations.
Trust Building Public Leadership Program
Co-designed with government, business and community sector leaders, this innovative program specifically aims to improve trust systems in Australia and integrity in governance.
Transformative exhibitions and events
Interactive and engaging, MoAD’s exhibitions and events will showcase core concepts of Australian democracy and highlight our latest research, providing a unique space for visitor experiences and responses.
Australian Democracy in the Asian Century
By building strong regional partnerships in the Asia-Pacific region to generate research, education and engagement, this program aims to enhance the quality of democratic practice.
