The Global Foundation is a citizens’ organization with extensive private sector membership, based in Australia.

Fully independent of government and funded by its members, The Global Foundation promotes high-level thinking within Australia and cooperation between Australia and the world. It works with government and institutions, the private sector, academia and the community, to help shape longer-term solutions to great challenges.The Global Foundation promotes itself as a custodian of Australia’s longer-term national interest and as having the ability to combine global and local perspectives – to seek common ground among otherwise disparate interests, while remaining independent.

The organisation’s major public policy programme is Australia Unlimited which has been running since 2006. This programme examines issues relating to Australia’s current and future development at a national and international level. Issues discussed include regional development, sustainability, and food security.
