Vision By 2050 Australia Will Be A Civil Society.
Social capital – voluntary association, trust and social equity – will be seen as more important to our future than economic capital. Australia will also be a more inclusive society than it is at present. There will be a high level of community engagement in decision-making processes, particularly at the local level, with all inputs being given due consideration. This will invariably lead to better outcomes. As a consequence, Australians will have a higher level of trust amongst themselves and with their decision-making institutions than at any time in the past.
