A BETTER QUEENSLAND
The Queensland Futures Institute (QFI) is a unique partnership of academic, business, community and social services, government, industry and research organisations that seek faster economic and social growth through collaborative public policy reform.
Our members are premier organisations with a significant stake in Queensland’s future.
The QFI pursues an apolitical discussion on Queensland’s future; its potential and its opportunities; the State that we want for our children and for newly minted Queenslanders.
We work alongside political and government processes; our dialogue centred around a vision of enhanced social and community development based upon long-term plan for economic growth.
Our public policy impact is achieved through thought-leadership, investment in evidence-based research, meetings with government and political leaders, media engagement, events and presentations.
An innovative, robust and thriving economy to enhance the social well-being and quality of life of all Queenslanders
The Queensland Futures Institute acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land, pays respect to Elders past and present, and extends that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Queensland.
