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.

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.
