Politicians need to look beyond the next election
Solving intergenerational issues requires long term thinking and strong data to support action on intergenerational issues.
Embed intergenerational perspectives in policy making
Every 5 years The Australian Government is required to produce an Intergenerational Report to encourage long term policy making and every year it gets ignored.
The next intergenerational report is due in 2020.
We need to ensure the scope of the report is increased and includes extensive consultation with young people. The report must provide an evidenced based approach to intergenerational perspectives so that the findings of the report are acted on.
Think Forward calls for the Federal Government to broaden the scope of the intergenerational report and include extensive consultation with young people.
