Humanity has reached a tipping point. It is time for governments, international institutions and people everywhere to take stock and act with renewed urgency.

Global university rankings: what function do they serve?

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Mon, 26/09/2022 - 4:50am in

Under the influence of New Public Management, Australia’s public universities have increasingly engaged in ‘management by numbers’ for ’performance measurement’. The accompanying proliferation of metrics has been used to discipline academics, bolster the ranks of senior managers and build tens of billions of dollars in assets. One of the more prominent metrics to which universities Continue reading »

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Sun, 25/09/2022 - 4:57am in

The concept of monarchy began as an antidote to human violence. The accession of Charles III is heightening reflection on the probability of Australia becoming a republic. Such a significant social decision benefits from wise discernment of the nature of the systems under discussion. In the matter of monarchy, the French American philosopher and anthropologist, Continue reading »

King Louis XV of France and Madame de Pompadour are reputed to have warned that across France after their deaths there would be life destroying floods of various kinds. By implication, these distant on-a pedestal characters were predicting that life after them could be far worse than when they reigned, so look back a little Continue reading »

Learning from people who are homeless

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Fri, 23/09/2022 - 4:41am in

A homeless person’s life, burdened, as it often is, by physical and mental illness, addiction, and social disadvantage, can lead us to think their life is meaningless and of no value; but we can be so wrong, they have much to teach us. Rootless and homeless, people wander from place to place. They walk to Continue reading »

The Sabra and Shatila massacre is personal

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Thu, 22/09/2022 - 4:30am in

These last few days, as they do every year, weigh heavy on every Palestinian’s heart. For me, and my family, the heaviness is also personal. Every Palestinian carries around two hearts. One is similar to that which all others carry; it keeps us alive, active, working, loving, moving, singing, playing, and hopeful that tomorrow will Continue reading »

Understanding Liveability to Advance Quality of Life

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 20/09/2022 - 8:21am in

Australia, like many peer nations, has woken up to the fact that we need to understand and measure prosperity in terms broader than GDP. Our leadership – political, social, corporate – is demonstrating this shift by placing more emphasis on community wellbeing in decision making.

And, while previous generations may have seen investment in wellbeing as being in conflict with traditional economic measures of progress, contemporary sentiment acknowledges that such things work better in concert.

Liveability is a central pillar of the wellbeing movement and our latest ebook Understanding Liveability to Advance Quality of Life outlines four things that we believe are important considerations for policy makers who are seeking to make a contribution in this space:

  • a resident centric approach
  • studied at sensibly small area geographies
  • comparing for context
  • monitoring for impact

This ebook has been published in support of our latest offer into local government, Living in Place.
