AUSTRALIA REMADE

Imagine you have woken up in the Australia of your dreams. What is it like?

The 2019 Sustainable Futures Convention is proudly partnering with the folk from Australia Remade to co-host a conversation on how we can all work towards creating the best version of us. We are basing the convention around the 9 pillars of the Australia Remade Model.

From the voices of many, Australia Remade emerged as a portrait of our collective hopes and dreams. This is our time! So welcome. We’re glad you’re here. We hope you will be inspired by some or all of the pillars. If you are, start talking. Share this vision. Join with us. Together we intend to tell a new story of Australia, a story that lifts our sights and souls, a story that energises and activates us to create change.
