Better fund and support pure and applied science, with a key focus being the creation of a sustainable society.

Policy Methods (Federal & State)

To help achieve this Sustainable Australia Party will:

  • Ensure students are science-literate through primary and secondary schools
  • Rebuild and/or adequately fund public scientific flagship institutions such as the CSIRO, the Bureau of Meteorology, Australian Space Agency and medical research institutions
  • Ensure enough quality public-sector jobs are available for science graduates and workers to stop the brain drain
  • Invest more in environmental education and the protection, maintenance and ecological restoration of the natural environment (also see Environment policy)
