First launched in 2019 in partnership with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, the Australia Talks project surveyed more than 50,000 Australians on a range of issues ranging from climate change to public safety to economic outlook. Australians were then invited to participate in an interactive application which compared their views with those of their fellow citizens. The initiative was a resounding success, with hundreds of thousands of users, dozens of news stories, and a live broadcast that presented the survey findings in further depth.
In light of all that’s changed since 2019 and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation decided to once again the Australia Talks project in 2021. In addition to capturing new insights about public opinion in Australia, it would also provide an opportunity to reflect as to how views have shifted since 2019.
